CU Boulder astrophysicist Ann-Marie Madigan has taken home a prestigious prize in recognition of her research exploring the dynamics of objects in space—from stars circling black holes to icy dwarf planets in the outer solar system.

This week, the American Astronomical Society (AAS) Division on Dynamical Astronomy (DDA) awarded Madigan its 2021 Vera Rubin Early Career Prize. The scientist, an assistant professor in the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences and a fellow at JILA, will present a lecture at the 53rd annual DDA meeting in spring 2022.
