Ninety three of the world's most academically exceptional and socially committed young people from 28 countries have been selected as Gates Cambridge Scholars and will begin their postgraduate courses at the University of Cambridge this October.
Three of them will be coming to this department.
Andi Reci is the first Gates Cambridge Scholar from Albania. He is currently in the final year of his MEng with us and will be staying on to do a PhD in Chemical Engineering. His main project will focus on applying Magnetic Resonance Imaging in novel applications such as catalyst characterisation and flow of fluids in porous media. These have direct impact in reducing the energy intensity of processes and improving the efficiency of recovery of hydrocarbons from rocks.
Miss Cassi Henderson is from the USA and will pursue her PhD under the co-supervision of Prof Lisa Hall and Dr Ronan Daly. The research will be an investigation into the fabrication of diagnostic kits through additive manufacturing.
Miss Adeline Klotz is from Australia and will be working on magnetic resonance to develop a tool in the engineering sector.
