Winner Announcement - Travel Award 2018
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2018 Environments Travel Award. This has been granted to Dr. Jose Luis Díaz De Tuesta Triviño, a postdoctoral researcher at the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança (IPB), Portugal. He works in the treatment of oily wastewater using an advanced oxidation process with amphiphilic carbon-based materials. To date, he has worked with carbon nanotubes, graphene, activated carbon and xerogel carbon as catalysts. His work not only consists of the assessment of carbon-based catalysts in these treatments, but also their production and chemical modification in order to increase their catalytic activity in the processes.Prof. Dr. Yu-Pin Lin
Travel Award 2017
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Environments Travel Award. This has been granted to:
Dr. Liesbeth Weijs, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Queensland, Australia. Her work is focused on the development of coupled models (PBTK/TD) for marine mammals in order to provide some fundamental components from which a comprehensive management and conservation strategy can be developed. Her research trajectory points towards providing PBTK/TD models as tools that can be used to reasonably connect exposure and effect in marine mammals. This is the crucial connection that is needed to assess risks in marine mammals across all life stages.
The award consisted of 800 Swiss Francs, to attend an academic conference of the winner’s choice in 2017. We would like to thank all the applicants for submitting their diverse and fascinating range of research topics.
