The Marlow Award is given annually in “recognition of the most meritorious contributions to physical chemistry or chemical physics”. Professor Michaelides’ citation reads “For his innovative contributions in broad areas of surface and physical chemistry, with particular relevance to heterogeneous catalysis and improved understanding of the water-ice interface”. The Award consists of a medal and cash prize.
On receiving the award Michaelides commented “Our work seeks fundamental new understanding of processes at surfaces, with a particular emphasis on water interfaces. It is very nice to win the Marlow Award in recognition of the hard work put in by our team and collaborators.”
Additional information about Professor Michaelides’ research is available on his group’s webpage.
