Dr Kathryn Mumford wins international prize for Chemical Engineering

Dr Kathryn Mumford from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering has been awarded a major international prize for early career chemical engineering researchers.

Dr Mumford is the latest recipient of IChemE’s Sir Frederick Warner Prize, which is presented every two years to an individual, normally in the early stages of their career, who has shown exceptional promise in the field of sustainable chemical process technology, nuclear technology or in making chemical engineering more accessible to a wider scientific community.

The award judges commented that Dr Mumford was “still in the early stages of her career but she has made some major contributions to date across a broad spectrum of technologies including polar remediation, CCS and slow release fertilisers.”

The prize will be presented later in 2017, when Dr Mumford will also be invited to present a lecture.
