Dr Ceri Hammond Awarded Royal Society Fellowship
26 June 2015
Cardiff Catalysis Institute is celebrating the successful achievement of Dr Ceri Hammond who has been awarded a prestigious Royal Society University Research Fellowship.
The much sought after Royal Society University Research Fellowships are awarded annually to outstanding young scientists in the early stages of their career. The fellowships are highly competitive and very prestigious, and may be held across all areas of the physical and life sciences. Typically around 500 applications are received annually, with only around 40 fellowships awarded.
Ceri is currently a Chancellor's Research Fellow at Cardiff, and leads an independent research group at the Cardiff Catalysis Institute and the School of Chemistry. His group specializes in several aspects of Catalysis Engineering, including materials design, catalytic process development (energy and chemical production, environmental remediation) and in situ spectroscopic methodologies. His Royal Society University Research Fellowship will focus on several emerging challenges in the area of porous materials, and particularly concerns the application of these novel materials as heterogeneous catalysts and inorganic (nano)therapeutic agents.
Ceri said: "I am delighted to have received the extremely prestigious University Research Fellowship from The Royal Society. The tremendous long-term, flexible support offered by The Royal Society is precisely what I need at this stage of my career, and provides me with the resources required to pursue high-risk, interdisciplinary lines of research. I am extremely grateful to the many people who have supported me over recent years, and who have provided me with the confidence and belief required to undertake this type of challenging research."
