Congratulations! The Mineralogical Society of America (MSA) has named Earth and Planets Laboratory (EPL) mineralogist Shaunna Morrison as the 2022 recipient of the MSA Award. This award recognizes outstanding contributions to the science of mineralogy by early career researchers.
Morrison, a planetary scientist and mineralogist, is known for her work in crystallography, crystal chemistry, and the innovative application of data-driven techniques to better understand planetary histories and the co-evolution of the mineral environment with life on Earth. She is also a Co-Director of Carnegie's 4D Initiative, a former Project Manager of the Carnegie-led Deep-Time Data Infrastructure (DTDI), and a Co-Investigator on NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover mission, among other roles.
