Louise Webster Prize
is awarded annually by the Astronomical
Society of Australia in recognition of outstanding research by a
scientist early in their post-doctoral career. The Prize is
awarded on the basis of the scientific impact of a single research
paper, which has the recipient as first author.
The 2019 Prize was
awarded to Shivani Bhandari for the paper
"The Survey for Pulsars and Extragalactic Radio Bursts – II. New FRB discoveries and their follow-up"
which was published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society in 2018.
