Dr Adrian Boatwright, 44, a postdoctoral research assistant with Dr Shengfu Yang from our Department of Chemistry, has won a silver award at a competition in the House of Commons, for the excellence of his chemistry research, walking away with a £2,000 prize.

Adrian presented chemistry research to dozens of politicians and a panel of expert judges, as part of the poster competition SET for Britain, on Monday 17 March.

His research into a new technique using quantum liquids to manufacture tiny super-strong magnets with potential uses in medicine was judged against 29 other shortlisted researchers’ work and came out on top.

SET for Britain aims to help politicians understand more about the UK’s thriving science and engineering base and rewards some of the strongest scientific and engineering research being undertaken in the UK.
