Lavier Wins Evgueni Burov Medal


Luc Lavier, an associate professor in the Department of Geological Sciences and research scientist at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics, was awarded the Evgueni Burov Medal by the International Lithosphere Program (ILP). The medal recognizes exceptional scientific work in combination with community services for midcareer achievements and serves to honor and recognize individuals who are enthusiastic researchers, scientists, teachers and contributors to ILP and the wider science community.

“I feel very happy to be recognized not just for my science but at the same time for being a positive influence on the community,” Lavier said. “I think this is important for the visibility of the university and for the international reputation of the Jackson School.” Lavier’s research group works to understand the fundamental laws controlling how the Earth deforms and changes over different timescales.
