Zama T. Katamzi-Joseph will receive the 2018 Sunanda and Santimay Basu (International) Early Career Award in Sun–Earth Systems Science at AGU’s Fall Meeting 2018, to be held 10–14 December in Washington, D. C. The award recognizes “outstanding contributions to research in Sun–Earth systems science that further the understanding of both plasma physical processes and their applications for the benefit of society.”

Zama T. Katamzi-Joseph received her B.S. in physics from the University of Cape Town in 2004 and her M.Sc. in astrophysics under the supervision of Lee-Anne McKinnell and Pierre Cilliers from Rhodes University in 2008. In 2011, she received her Ph.D. under the supervision of Cathryn Mitchell from the University of Bath. Her research interests include thermosphere–ionosphere dynamics and the influence of gravity waves and traveling ionospheric disturbances, tides, and geomagnetic storms on the ionosphere and thermosphere.
