Malcolm McIvor Prize Winner 2018
Malcolm McIvor was one of the key people in ICI who helped establish CPACT in 1997 and he played a prominent role in PhD project supervision during the early stages of CPACT’s activities.
Malcolm enjoyed his engagement with CPACT and has generously endowed a prize that he wishes to be awarded annually to a postgraduate student or early career researcher (within 3 years of a PhD) at a CPACT university/Institute or member company in recognition of that researchers achievement in process analytics and control technologies. The prize will seek to recognise an individual’s excellence in terms of academic achievement, creative thinking or engagement between academia and industry. The value of the prize will be £1,000.
After much deliberation the selection panel has decided that this year's winner is Puneet Mishra, Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher, from the University of Strathclyde.
Puneet will receive his prize from Malcolm at the CPACT Research Day on 2nd October and will present on De-noising, compression and data fusion: new approaches for automatically managing and processing hyperspectral imaging.
