Ayumi Miura showered with honours

Posted on January 14, 2021 by



PhD alumna Ayumi Miura has had an enviable run with prestigious awards. In December 2020, she was awarded a prize from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. The prize is awarded to junior scholars in a tough interdisciplinary competition, judged on two criteria: the quality and originality of research outputs, and leadership potential of the researcher.

If that wasn’t impressive enough, Ayumi was subsequently awarded the Japan Academy medal, a crème de la crème prize for six selected recipients of the JSPS award. The medal awarded to Ayumi is in recognition of her written work, including a monograph and several articles and chapters, as well as her editorial work, some of which you have previously encountered on Manchet (here and here).

Ayumi was a PhD student at LEL in 2008-2011, supervised by David Denison and Nuria Yáñez-Bouza.
She returned to Japan in 2012 and now work as associate professor at Osaka University. Manchet congratulates!
