Iain Burns has been awarded a Bernard Lewis Fellowship.
Every two years, the Combustion Institute awards a Bernard Lewis Fellowship to up to five young researchers from an extremely strong worldwide field of nominees. The Fellowship will provide full financial support for Iain to attend the 31st International Symposium on Combustion to be held August 6 - 11, 2006 in Heidelberg, Germany, where he will present a paper.
Iain completed his PhD earlier this year in this Department on the subject of A sensor for combustion thermometry based on blue diode lasers, and is currently a Research Fellow of St John's College. He continues to work within the Laser Analytics Group on projects related to diode laser sensing.
The leader of the Laser Analytics Group Dr Clemens Kaminski said, "Congratulations on a most outstanding achievement, one of the highest for a researcher at your career stage."
