EIL Researcher Dr Mateen Mirza wins AWE/Armourers and Brasiers' Thesis Prize

21 July 2023

Dr Mateen Miza prize acceptance

Post-doctoral researcher Dr Mateen Mirza has been awarded the AWE/Armourers and Brasiers’ Materials Science Thesis Prize. The prize is awarded annually for the best thesis on a materials science theme produced by an AWE-sponsored postgraduate student and published in the 12 months preceding the judging.  The process is initiated by an invitation to industrial supervisors within AWE to nominate their sponsored student(s) and the shortlisted theses are then judged by a panel of Distinguished Specialists for presentation, readability and scientific content.

On the 20th June, Dr Mirza attended the Materials Science Forum at the University of Cambridge where he collected his prize. This is a fantastic achievement and demonstrates the hard work put in throughout his PhD. We have seen these efforts continued through Dr Mirza's post-doctoral research, and congratulate him for such well-deserved recognition.
