Official ceremony: University Rector, Raul and the Head of the Academic Senate

Department alumnus and Wolfson student from Chile, Dr Raul Conejeros, undertook his PhD studies onSimulation, Optimisation and Control of Biological Process Systems under the supervision of Dr Vassilis Vassiliadis from 1997 -2000. He was funded by Agencia Cooperation International in Chile.

On 10 November 2009 he was officially given the full professorship at his current University, the School of Biochemical Engineering in Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso, Chile, where he started working back in 2005.

Raul commented "I am very happy with this promotion, which is really a new start up in higher responsibilities in my Uni. I am grateful to my old School, The Chemical Engineering Department, which has backed me up facilitating things for me, since I graduated, so thanks to you all guys. Please give my regards to the old friends and all the best for you."

His old supervisor Dr Vassiliadis added that "Raul's performance during his studies was exceptionally good, he has continued producing high-quality work upon returning to Chile and he has remained a good friend and close collaborator to this Department over the years"

We are obviously very proud of Raul's achievement and, on behalf of the whole Department, we wish him all the best in his new role as Professor in Chile.
