Commenting on the awad, Dr. Murphy said "It is a real honour to receive this award. APS was the first conference I delivered a talk at during my PhD - back in 2016 - and to be recognised in this way, and be included amongst other early career scientists whom I deeply respect, is the greatest compliment."
