Prof. Claire Carmalt, Head of Department, UCL Chemistry

The UCL One Awards recognise, celebrate and reward our Professional Services and Academic colleagues who have demonstrated outstanding performance in their roles, contributing to the success of UCL. Awards were given for Personal Excellence, Individual Contribution, Working Together, Team Contribution, Community Spirit, Contribution to Staff Experience, and the Leadership Award for Outstanding Contribution.

The nominees for the Leadership Award for Outstanding contribution were nominated by their teams and individuals with the winners selected by Fiona Ryland, UCL Chief Operating Officer. Although the nominations were not specific to the current pandemic, the winners have shown outstanding leadership in the way they have guided their colleagues and departments over the many hurdles thrown up by coronavirus, to the benefit of UCL and our staff and students.

Leadership Award for Outstanding Contribution 

Professor Claire Carmalt, Head of Department of Chemistry, has led the Department throughout the pandemic in both an inspiring and reassuring manner, successfully embedding a business-as-usual attitude whilst allaying the many anxieties that this extraordinary time has presented to all of us. From the first days of the pandemic in the UK, Professor Carmalt has demonstrated the vision, commitment and inspiration that defines leadership and thus ensured that the Department of Chemistry would be one of the first to reopen in June 2020, becoming a template for other departments to follow. Her leadership throughout the pandemic has been outstanding.
