The College was delighted to hear the news that a number of Members have recently been recognised for their work.
St Catharine’s Fellow, Professor John Pyle, has received the Davy Medal from the Royal Society, which is awarded annually to an outstanding researcher in the field of chemistry. Professor Pyle has been recognised for his pioneering leadership in understanding the depletion of the global ozone layer by halocarbons, particularly coupling between chemistry, radiation, and dynamics, and the special vulnerability of Arctic ozone. He will receive the medal at the Society's Anniversary Day Meeting on 30 November 2018.
Professor Simon Gaunt, Honorary Fellow and now Professor of French Language and Literature at King’s College, London, has been elected as a Fellow of the British Academy. He is joined by Professor Helen Small, a former research Fellow at St Catharine’s, who is now a Professor of English Literature at Pembroke College, Oxford. This honour is in recognition of their achievements in the humanities and social sciences.
