"I am very honoured to receive this Young Scientist Award”, Trzeciak says. “It is a result of more than two years of measurements and data analysis in the ALICE experiment conducted in the group of Andre Mischke and the coordination work in the ALICE Heavy-Flavour group. I would like to express my gratitude to these research groups for their continuous support and stimulating discussions.”

The prize is awarded at the yearly Quark Matter conference to young scientists who are maximal six years after their PhD degree. Trzeciak obtained her Master’s and PhD degree at Warsaw University of Technology. After a postdoc position at the Czech Technical University in Prague, she took on a postdoc position in the group of André Mischke.
