David Scanlon

On Monday 4th June, UCL recognised the achievements of staff and students and their contributions to our learning community through the Academic Rep of the year, the ChangeMakers Poster Competition, the UCL Arena/Higher Education Academy Fellowships Student Choice Awards, and the UCL Education Awards.

David Scanlon (UCL Chemistry) won the award for outstanding research supervision. David is extremely popular in his (and other) research groups, and has been commended for the detailed personal attention he pays to each individual student, his enthusiasm in encouraging groups to work with cutting-edge technologies, and his dedication to helping students find and make the most of academic opportunities.
Several other Mathematical & Physical Sciences Faculty staff were also shortlisted for awards. Helen Fielding (UCL Chemistry) was shortlisted for the Exceptional Feedback award, for her quick, clear and considerate feedback, which inspires students to think creatively and critically.

Phyllis Illari (UCL Science & Technology Studies) was shortlisted for the Excellent Personal Tutoring Award for her immensely caring and available pastoral support.

The MAPS Faculty Academic Rep of the year was awarded to Teja Vaddavalli (UCL Statistical Science), who has made a real impact in building the student community in his department through organising popular weekly events that have become a staple of departmental life and been tremendously successful in bringing students together.
