Marialuisa Aliotta, a member of the LUNA Collaboration, was awarded the Giuseppe Occhialini Prize 2021 “for her major contributions to nuclear astrophysics experiments, in particular to the study of key hydrogen-burning reactions relevant to quiescent stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis, in the framework of the international LUNA experiments at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, INFN.”

The prize is announced on an annual basis alternatively by the SIF and IOP, to award a physicist based in Italy or in the UK or Ireland, respectively, in recognition of distinguished work in Physics research carried out within the past 10 years.  

Congratulations Marialuisa!
