Dr Louise Slater

Each year, the American Geophysical Union's (AGU) Honors and Recognition programme recognises individuals for meritorious work or service toward the advancement and promotion of discovery and solution science. These individuals, in various career stages, represent some of the most innovative minds in their disciplines. The 2022 awards, announced this week, honour Louise Slater for her outstanding contribution to hydrology.

Louise is Associate Professor in Physical Geography and Fellow of Hertford College at the University of Oxford. Her research addresses changes in water and weather extremes in the context of climate and societal change. In 2021, she was awarded a Future Leaders Fellowship by UK Research and Innovation to develop a comprehensive understanding of how floods have been evolving around the world and may continue to evolve in the future under climate change.

"I'm incredibly honored and thankful to receive the AGU's Hydrologic Sciences Early Career Award! I'm grateful to my nominator and letter writers, mentors, collaborators, and all the Water Lab members in the School of Geography at the University of Oxford. I feel very fortunate to be working with all these people day-to-day."

AGU will formally recognise this year's recipients during the 2022 Fall Meeting, 12-16 December 2022 in Chicago, IL and online everywhere. AGU supports 130,000 enthusiasts to experts worldwide in Earth and space sciences. Through broad and inclusive partnerships, they advance discovery and solution science that accelerate knowledge and create solutions that are ethical, unbiased and respectful of communities and their values.
