Congratulations to Emily, who has been awarded the 2015 Gold Medal of the Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering for excellence in graduate research. Her particular contribution – carried out as a PhD student in Brendan Kennedy’s group at Sydney — focussed on the structural chemistry of materials of relevance to nuclear waste storage. ANSTO have published a great summary of Emily’s achievements on its website. We’re all very proud of her great achievement. Congratulations Emily!
