Canadian Catalysis Lectureship Award 2001 – Dr. Marten Ternan

The Cana­di­an Catal­y­sis Foun­da­tion is pleased to announce that Dr. Marten Ter­nan is the win­ner of the 2001 Cana­di­an Catal­y­sis Lec­ture­ship Award. He is cur­rent­ly work­ing with a team at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ottawa (Bour­gault, Con­way, and Pso­fo­gian­nakis) on mod­el­ing direct hydro­car­bon fuel cells using com­pu­ta­tion­al flu­id dynam­ics. The award con­sists of an hon­o­rar­i­um along with fund­ing so that the win­ner can pro­vide a series of lec­tures across Cana­da. The Cana­di­an Catal­y­sis Lec­ture­ship Award is made to a researcher who is rec­og­nized as a leader in a par­tic­u­lar field of catal­y­sis, or some­one who has just com­plet­ed a new and interesting/controversial piece of work that is not wide­ly rec­og­nized. It is restrict­ed to Cana­di­ans who are cur­rent­ly work­ing in Cana­da in the area of catal­y­sis, and is intend­ed to pro­vide expo­sure to Cana­di­an sci­en­tists and engi­neers.
