Salters' prize for Christina Karapataki

Christina Karapataki

Christina Karapataki has been awarded one of this year's Graduate prizes from The Salters' Institute of Industrial Chemistry.

Each year, the Salters' Institute invites every UK department of Chemistry or Chemical Engineering to nominate one final year undergraduate. The selectors are looking for candidates who will ultimately be able to occupy leading positions in the UK Chemical Industry.

Christina is currently in Part IIB of her Chemical Engineering MEng course and she says, "I was honored to be nominated by the Department for the Salters' prize this year. I attended two interviews at the Salters' Institute in London where I was asked about my future career plans, the issues facing the UK industry and about the Chemical Engineering course at Cambridge. After finishing my MEng degree, I will continue my academic studies by attending the Technology Policy Program at MIT."
