The EPS Alfvén Prize 2020 is awarded to Dr Annick Pouquet

THe EPS Plasma Physics Divison awarded the EPS Alfvén Prize 2020 to Dr Annick Pouquet "for fundamental contributions to quantifying energy transfer in magneto-fluid turbulence. Annick Pouquet’s contributions, together with her colleagues, include predicting the inverse cascade of magnetic helicity, extending the accessible frontier of nonlinear numerical computations, and key steps forward in the analytical theory of turbulence. Her work has facilitated remarkable advances in the understanding of turbulence in astrophysical and space plasmas."
