Philipp Grete wins German Astronomical Society 2017 Doctoral Thesis Award

Philipp Grete, research associate in the MSU Department of Physics and Astronomy, has been awarded the 2017 German Astronomical Society (AG) Doctoral Thesis Award. His Ph.D. dissertation, “Large eddy simulations of compressible magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence”, was completed in 2016 at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Science (MPS) and the Institute for Astrophysics at Georg-August-Universität, Göttingen, Germany.

After receiving his Ph.D., he joined the MSU P-A Department in October 2016, working with Associate Professor Brian O'Shea in the field of computational astrophysics, developing computer simulations to further our understanding of such topics as energy transfer in systems subject to compressible MHD turbulence.
