Citation: The 2014 EMU Research Excellence Medal has been awarded to Encarnación Ruiz-Agudo, Department of Mineralogy and Petrology, University of Granada, Spain. She is awarded the EMU Medal for excellence in research in recognition for her important contributions to the field of mineral-water interactions and related phenomena. Her research finds a wide range applications from weathering processes and geochemical proxies to crystal growth processes and environmental remediation. The awarding of this medal also recognizes Dr. Ruiz-Agudo’s active involvement in mineralogical research at the European level with collaborations with scientists from numerous countries. Her stature in the international mineralogical community is underlined by her guest editorship of a recent issue of ELEMENTS (June 2013).
