Bristol celebrates student success in low carbon research project competition
A University of Bristol student has been awarded first prize in a competition aimed to recognise outstanding student research in the area of low carbon technologies.
Jo Humphrey, a final year undergraduate in the School of Chemistry, achieved this accolade for her exceptional work in developing novel new materials for fuel cell applications.
In addition to Jo, the three runners-up in the competition were:
- Bretton Davis, University of Bristol, for his project on Model testing of self installing wind turbines (SIWT) for UK offshore round 2 development
- Chris Kiely, University of Bath, for his project on the Actuator design for a variable-pitch cross-flow tidal turbine
- Hamish Woodrow, University of Bath, for his project on Coupled CO2 sequestration and geothermal energy production
The competition, now in its second year, is promoted by Low Carbon South West, a partnership between businesses, academia, and local authorities promoting the growth of the environmental technologies and services sector in the South West.
