Laurence Yeung, assistant professor of Earth Science at Rice University, will receive the 2016 F.W. Clarke Award this summer. The Clarke Award recognizes an early-career scientist for a single outstanding contribution to geochemistry or cosmochemistry published either as a single paper or a series of papers on a single topic. Prof. Yeung is recognized for developing, both experimentally and theoretically, a new clumped isotopologue system with applications to natural systems. The award will be formally presented at the Goldschmidt 2016 conference in Yokohama, Japan this June.
