A Big Award

We have been celebrating our Year 13 award winners during this week so it was appropriate that we heard the news that Old Boy Dr Tim Sullivan has recently been awarded the Plinius Medal by the European Geosciences Union.

Tim is currently based at the University of Pavia in Italy. The medal is reserved for excellent young scientists who have (a) outstanding research achievements in a field related with natural hazards, (b) important interdisciplinary activity in two or more fields related with this topic and (c) whose research has focused on the mitigation of natural risks.

Well done to Tim. It is always great to see old boys making a big impact in their chosen fields.
