Malvern Instruments Product Technical Specialist for Rheology, Dr John Duffy, has been awarded the prestigious Vernon Harrison doctoral prize given annually by the British Society of Rheology (BSR). He received his award, and gave his award lecture, at the BSR Midwinter Meeting at the University of Edinburgh’s School of Physics and Astonomy, Edinburgh, Scotland, (14-15 December 2009).

Dr Mike Kaszuba, Malvern’s Technical Specialist Supervisor said:

“This is a superb achievement. John was awarded his Doctor of Philosophy degree in November 2008 from the University of Nottingham for his work on rheological studies of the microstructure of molten coal as it undergoes carbonisation. By then, Malvern had already snapped him up. Known for the high calibre of our in-house scientific specialists, we recognised the importance of the rheological expertise and industrial experience that John brings to the company and the benefits for our customers.

” John Duffy’s award winning thesis is entitled: ‘Understanding the Mechanisms Behind Coking Pressure: Relationship to Pore Structure and Thermoplastic Properties.’
