Rahimah Othman Wins Annual Postgraduate Seminar Award
Approximately 20 Chemical Engineering students take part in the Postgraduate Seminar Award competition each year and the award is voted on by fellow postgraduate students and academics that are present at each seminar. The prize is awarded to the PG student with the most votes based on their performance during their seminar delivery.
Rahimah's seminar was judged as being particularly good, both in regard to style and the quality of research presented, which was based on her PhD project. The project dealt with the preparation and characterisation of biodegradable nanoparticles loaded with pharmaceutical actives using advanced membrane and microfluidic dispersion techniques.
Rahimah, pictured above receiving her award and below, had this to say in regard to receiving the award:
"I was extremely delighted to be awarded this prize. The student seminar was a great opportunity to present my work, exchange ideas and get valuable feedback from the other PhD students and lecturers. I would like to thank my supervisors, Dr Goran Vladisavljević, Prof Zoltan Nagy and Prof. Richard Holdich for their expert guidance, considerate support and continual encouragement throughout this research project. I would also like to thank the Chemical Engineering Department, Loughborough University for organising this seminar."
A significant amount of Rahimah’s work had already published, prior to the presentation. For more details on Rahimah’s research, please follow this link: https://dspace.lboro.ac.uk/dspace-jspui/browse?type=author&value=Othman%2C+Rahimah
