Prestigious prize awarded to Sensor CDT student Chris Valentine

Sensor CDT student Chris Valentine was awarded the Leete Premium award for the research he will be carrying out as part of his PhD studies.

The Leete Award is given annually by the Engineer’s Trust toy a 1st year PhD student based at the Institute of Manufacturing (IfM), which is part of the Department of Engineering, Cambridge University. The award is the legacy of Dr. David Leete and has the stated intention to encourage manufacturing research to be undertaken by students.

For his PhD studies, Chris will be developing carbon nanotube based electrochemical sensors under the supervision of Dr. Michael De Volder (IfM) and Dr. Adrian Fisher (Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology). Feedback on Chris’ project stated that “The proposal described a credible fusing of established technologies as the starting point of the manufacture of much improved low cost sensors on-a-chip for gases, with prospects of advancing the products and their manufacture during the project.”.

Chris commenced the work in October 2016 and is looking forward to the next 3 years of exciting study.

Congratulations!
