​Congratulations to Ph.D. Student Nour Atef who has won first prize in the Poster Competition at the 24th International Symposium on Gas Kinetics and Related Phenomena, which was held at the University of York from 17-21 July.

The Royal Society of Chemistry sponsors the Symposium which traditionally provides an open forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest research on a wide range of topics related to gas-phase chemical kinetics.  This has been expanded over recent years to cover all aspects of atmospheric and combustion chemistry, with heterogeneous systems involving micro- and nanoparticles getting an increasing role.

Nour is a Ph.D. student in the Chemical and Biological Engineering Program she is supervised by Associate Professor Mani Sarathy and is affiliated with the Clean Combustion Research Center.

She presented her work on understanding gasoline fuel combustion using a combination of experiments and computational simulations and her Poster was selected from over 100 entries.
