EFCE: Winners of Student Mobility Awards
Five winners will each receive a coveted Student Mobility Award from the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE), to be presented at the 9th European Congress of Chemical Engineering in The Hague next month.
The biennial awards recognize the value of international mobility during the early years of higher academic study. They are awarded to those students who – through the combination of academic and cross-cultural experiences – demonstrate ambition, appreciation of international projects in chemical engineering and contribution to ongoing research.
Having completed her undergraduate studies in chemical and bioengineering at Friedrich-Alexander-University, Erlangen, Germany, 1st prize winner Sandra Temmel’s first overseas study experience took her to Nanjing, PRC, where she pursued her interest in Chinese language and culture. On returning to Erlangen, she completed her Bachelor’s Degree at the Chair for interfacial and solid process engineering, and then undertook a scholarship exchange semester at Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon in Monterrey, Mexico. The following year (2011-2012) saw the start of a year-long study at Master’s level at CSIRO in Melbourne, Australia, culminating in her thesis entitled Enhanced separation of cream in a megasonic cubic reactor. Interspersed with her academic study, Temmel has accumulated rich professional experiences such as at the BayZoltán Foundation for Applied Research at Miskolc, Hungary, where she worked on liposome research. She is currently continuing her research at the Paul-Scherrer-Institut in Zürich, with doctoral studies into fuel cells.
Other prizewinners are Alessandra Pennati, Reyes Aibar Abad, Marta Bilbao and Emmanouil Papadakis.
