54th Annual DDA Meeting
DDA’s annual Dirk Brouwer Career Award recognizes a major contributor to the field of dynamical astronomy who demonstrates excellence in scientific research, has had a proven impact and influence in the field, demonstrates excellence in the teaching and training of students, and provides outstanding advancement and other support of the field through administration, public service, or engineering achievement. The 2022 award goes to Dr. Harold (Hal) Levison (Southwest Research Institute, Boulder CO) to recognize and celebrate his outstanding contributions to our understanding of the Solar System, and to the numerical tools used to study these topics.
DDA’s annual Vera Rubin Early Career Prize recognizes an early career dynamicist who demonstrates excellence in scientific research in dynamical astronomy or a closely related field, has had impact and influence on these fields, and shows a promise of continued excellence as demonstrated by past practice in research, teaching, and the advancement and support of the field of dynamical astronomy. The 2022 prize goes to Dr. Kathryn (Kat) Volk (Planetary Science Institute) for her contributions to our understanding of the dynamics of small bodies beyond Neptune, and to the long-term dynamics and stability of tightly packed exoplanetary systems.
