One of the School of Engineering’s distinguished researchers, Professor H P (Pwt) Evans, has been elected a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales.
The Society harnesses the expertise of its Fellowship to promote awareness of how the sciences and the arts, humanities and social sciences benefit society. Fellows assist the Society in this work by serving on its committees and working groups, and by representing it nationally and internationally.
Professor Evans, DSc FIMechE, who is a Deputy Director of the School, and Leader of the Tribology Research Group, was recognised for his work undertaking the highest calibre of scientific enquiry at UK-level. He is known for his expertise in the numerical analyses of fundamental and applied tribological problems.
Election to Fellowship of the Learned Society of Wales is through a rigorous five-stage election process. Entrants must have a demonstrable record of excellence and achievement in any of the academic disciplines or who have made a distinguished contribution to the world of learning.
Sir Emyr Jones Parry, the Society's President, said:
"I am delighted to welcome such a wide range of outstanding individuals to the Fellowship this year. Each new Fellow is elected on the distinguished merit of their work. These new Fellows will help strengthen our capacity to support excellence across all areas of academic and public life, both in Wales and abroad.”
