Dr. Ziri Younsi will join a cohort of outstanding young scientists from around the world at the prestigious 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.
The meeting will take place from 30th June - 5th July in Lindau, Germany, and will be attended by 580 students, doctoral candidates and post-docs under the age of 35 from 88 countries. At least 41 Nobel Laureates will also be taking part in the meeting, which this year is dedicated to physics. More than 130 academic partners worldwide – academies, universities and foundations – nominated the candidates for participation after internal application procedures.
Established in 1951, the aim of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings is to bring together world-leading pioneers in science with outstanding young scientists from around the world. The meetings alternately focus on physiology/medicine, physics, chemistry and economic sciences.
Dr. Ziri Younsi is a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, whose work focuses on the calculation and identification of polarised electromagnetic signatures of the radiation from supermassive black holes using fundamental physics, supercomputing and astronomical data.
Commenting on his selection, Dr. Younsi said: "I am very happy to have been nominated by the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences and selected by the Royal Society and the Lindau Scientific Committee to attend the 69th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.
