Commended for research into nano materials

03 December 2015

Dr Camille Petit from Imperial College London, UK, has been presented with the third Sir Frederick Warner Prize by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).

Dr Petit was commended for her research into nanomaterials, and how they can be used to tackle global energy challenges. Her prize presentation, ‘Little solutions to big problems’, described the research in more detail, with a focus on carbon capture.

Camille, who currently lectures at Imperial College London within the chemical engineering department, was delighted to receive the award, saying: “It is a great honour to receive any award, but especially the Sir Warner Prize. His drive to change things for the best has truly been evident throughout his working life.”

The award pays tribute to the memory of IChemE past president, the late Sir Frederick ‘Ned’ Warner, and is typically given to high achievers in sustainable or nuclear chemical process technology.

The medal was presented by IChemE president, Andrew Jamieson, who said: ”The Sir Frederick Warner prize reminds us that IChemE is an organisation that builds a strong future based on a proud past. Camille Petit is part of that future and a worthy winner.”
