Theses are judged on 1 originality and creativity of the research, 2 importance to the field of gravitational waves and gravitational wave detection, broadly interpreted, and 3 clarity of presentation in the thesis. This is a key element in all the designs for detectors with sensitivity beyond the second generation baselines. His thesis describes a beautiful experiment demonstrating frequency-dependent squeezed states suitable for Advanced LIGO. It is expected that many of the nominations will come from the member projects of GWIC, but this is not a requirement. The two Prizes are awarded alternately at the Amaldi Conferences on Gravitational Waves in odd numbered years and another appropriate conference in even numbered years.
