Introducing the Hamilton series!

The Hamilton Award, the Royal Society Te Apārangi Early Career Research Excellence Award for Science, is awarded annually for the encouragement of scientific research by early-career researchers currently based in Aotearoa. This prize is associated with the Hamilton Lecture every third year, but this year we will be introducing our 2016 to 2018 winners digitally.

  • Physicist and self-confessed minimalist, Dr Miro Erkintalo, who takes “tweezers” to laser light, was presented the Hamilton Award in 2016.

Miro, shares what it is like to win the Hamilton Award, how to draw balance between personal life and research, his hopes for the future, and what it is like settling down on the other side of the world.
