Science staff members honoured

Two Faculty of Science academics have been honoured by being awarded a prestigious Redmond Barry Distinguished Professor title.

Vice-Chancellor Glyn Davis said the title is awarded to professors who demonstrate outstanding leadership in the university and wider community, and pre-eminence in their research, teaching and creative activity.

Professor Geoff Taylor and Professor Rachel Webster, both from the School of Physics, were among seven academics across the university to be included in this latest prestige.

They join Professor Mike Sandiford, who received the same honour earlier this year, which is named after the university’s founder and first chancellor.
