The 2011 Division Outstanding Young Scientist Award is awarded to István Kovács for his outstanding contribution to quantitative infrared spectroscopy of nominally anhydrous minerals and its application to the lithosphere-asthenosphere system.

My research interests are water in nominally anhydrous minerals (NAMs), infrared spectroscopy, water and mantle metasomatism, evolution of the subcontinental lithosphere, geodynamics of the Carpathian-Pannonian region.
