Congratulations to Dr Lars Goerigk for being awarded a 2020 Rennie Memorial Medal, the highest national prize awarded to early career researchers by the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI).

With this award, the RACI recognises Lars’ contributions to the field of Density Functional Theory (DFT) which helped close the gap between DFT developers and users, informed users on the current best practice in the field, and included some of the currently best DFT methods for the treatment of excited-state problems.
