The selection committee decided to award three students a prize:

  • Eva Abels received a 500 euro cash prize for her thesis "Effects of a 12-week aerobic exercise intervention on hippocampal neurometabolism in young healthy adults – A 7T MRS study." The selection committee praised Eva for the massive amount of work she has done and her excellent reporting;
  • Sofia Orellana was awarded the opportunity to present her work at the International Conference on Computational Science next year (ICCS 2020). The selection committee specifically praised the novelty of her thesis: "Detecting Cascading Network Failure in Glioma: Developing a novel metric for failure assessment".
  • Fiona Lippert received a book for her rigorous work on "Information Dissipation in Criminal Networks".
