PhD-stipendiat Isabel Edmundson ved Institutt for geovitenskap ved Universitetet i Bergen (UiB) ble forrige uke tildelt pris for beste poster.
Prisutdelingen fant sted under den årlige ARCEx-konferansen i Longyearbyen.
Under konferansen presenterer ARCEx-forskerne nyeste viten i form av foredrag, postere, demonstrasjoner og ekskursjoner.

Tectonic Studies Group skriver følgende om Edmundson:
Izzy Edmundson is in her first year of PhD studies at the University of Bergen in Norway. She is not new to Norway since she previously worked as a graduate geoscientist for two years in Stavanger.
She studied at Royal Holloway, University of London for her MSc in Petroleum Geoscience. She made this switch to geology in 2013 having previously studied geography for her undergraduate studies at Newnham College, University of Cambridge.
Her research focuses on structural controls on fluid flow in the SW Barents Sea. The research combines analysis of subsurface data and structural modelling techniques, with field work and laboratory tests on fault rocks samples, she hopes from Svalbard!
This area of research has relevance not only for the petroleum industry but also, geothermal, carbon storage and construction.
Aside from geology, her passions include road cycling, skiing and horse-riding having previously worked as a jockey in the UK.
