Entropy 2020–2021 Travel Award in Astrophysics, Cosmology, and Black Holes
As Editor-in-Chief of Entropy, I am pleased to announce the winner of the Entropy 2020–2021 Travel Award in Astrophysics, Cosmology, and Black Holes.
The award has been granted to Mr. Noel Castro Segura, a PhD student at University of Southampton. The goal of his research is to shed light on some fundamental problems related to accretion physics and binary evolution. In particular, his main focus is on how outflows affect these systems. He is planning to present his works “Accretion disk winds in black-hole LMXRB: The missing link” at the Vasto Accretion Meeting (30 May–5 June 2021, Vasto, Italy). The award consists of 800 Swiss francs, to be used to attend this conference.
With so many high-quality applicants, the evaluation process and final decision were challenging. We would like to thank all the applicants for submitting their diverse and fascinating range of research topics. On behalf of the assessment committee, I congratulate the winner on his accomplishments.
Prof. Dr. Kevin H. Knuth
