Awards and Honours
  • 2020 Charles F. Richter Early Career Award of the Seismological Society of America for innovative research in earthquake rupture dynamics and tsunami genesis, among other topics, using physics-based models and high-performance computing.
  • 2020 PRACE Ada Lovelace Award for HPC Annual award for a female scientist making an outstanding contribution and impact on High Performance Computing (HPC) in Europe and the world, and serves as a role model for women.
  • 2019 ERC Starting Grant Awardee - “TEAR - Truly Extended Earthquake Rupture"
  • 2019 Top Downloaded JGR Article. van Zelst et al., 2019, was recognised as one of the most read in Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth.
  • 2018 Top Altmetric GJI Article. Wollherr et al., 2018, was one of the top 10 articles published in Geophysical Journal International with the highest Altmetric scores.
  • 2018 Selected Paper for Student Cluster Competition Reproducibility Challenge, IEEE/ACM International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC18), Dallas, USA. 16 teams of undergraduate students reproduced our SC17 paper in a real-time, non-stop, 48-hour challenge
  • 2018 Appointment to the LMU Center of Advanced Studies – Young Center
  • 2018 Visiting Professor Scholarship, KAUST King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia. Collaboration on three-dimensional rupture dynamics across complex fault systems for the Gulf of Aqaba fault system and cascading fractures in geo-reservoirs; teaching of two short-courses.
  • 2017 SC17 Best Paper Award, IEEE/ACM International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC17), Denver, USA. Most prestigious prize for application driven high-performance computing awarding the longest and largest multi-physics simulations performed to date modelling the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake.
  • 2014 ACM Gordon Bell Prize Finalist, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) at International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC14), New Orleans, USA. Highly competitive, annually awarded prize for outstanding achievements in high-performance computing.
