At this year’s Doctoral Training Centre Summer Showcase two members of the Chuck Group were awarded prizes for their work in their first year of the integrated PhD course in the Doctoral Training Centre (DTC). The Summer Showcase is a chance to discuss and present the latest research in the area of sustainable chemical technologies to industrial and international partners of the centre.
Rhodri won the Whorrod Prize in Sustainable Chemical Technologies, which is awarded to the student receiving the highest overall mark for their MRes year. The Whorrod Prize includes a cash prize supported by a donation from businessman and University of Bath graduate, Roger Whorrod. As well as this, Lisa won the ‘Research Project Prize’, awarded for the highest mark in an MRes research project and the ‘Spirit of the DTC Prize’, a prize elected by fellow students in the DTC for overall contribution to the DTC.
Janet Scott, DTC Co-ordinator, said: “We’re very lucky in the DTC to be able to attract very academically able and hard-working students, and it’s great to be able to recognise Rhod and Lisa’s work in this way. Congratulations to them both.”
