Assistant Professor Thomas Gernay has been awarded the International Association for Fire Safety Science (IAFSS) Magnusson Early Career Award. This recognition is awarded every three years for “meritorious achievement by members of the IAFSS who are early in their careers and have contributed a body of work that is of significance to fire safety science”.

Thomas will be recognized at the upcoming IAFSS symposium, where he will be asked to deliver a review paper summarizing his contributions to the field. The award also comes with a small research grant.
