Congratulations to Dr. Peter Barry on being awarded the prestigious 2018 Deep Carbon Observatory’s Emerging Leader Award.
The award honours early career researchers for distinguished performance and unique potential as leaders of the deep carbon science community, and have been bestowed on two to three outstanding early career scientists each year since 2015.
Barry, a USGS Research Fellow in the Department of Earth Sciences, was selected, along with Dr. Sabin Zahirovic from the University of Sydney, through a competitive process, which included an open call for nominations from the DCO community. Each will receive a certificate and a display slab of carbonated Oman ophiolite. They will also receive DCO support to present their deep carbon research at an international conference.
