Winner of NNL WM2016 Bursary Announced

Date: August 28, 2015

The winner of the NNL WM2016 bursary competition is Johannes (Andre) Botha, PhD student at the University of Leeds, for his proposed paper titled “A Novel Technology for Complex Rheological Measurements”.

In coming to this decision, NNL included the technical quality of the abstract, the level of interest that the subject is likely to generate at the conference and the extent of collaboration with industry. The abstract submitted by Andre was strong in all three areas.

NNL found the decision very difficult to make as several excellent papers were proposed. Well done to those who you who submitted an abstract, and congratulations to Andre for winning the competition!

DISTINCTIVE will be holding a technical oral session at the WM2016 Symposium. More details on the session will be available in due course.
