For the development of interfacial flux imaging, enabling quantitative visualisation of interfacial processes with high spatial and temporal resolution, and impact that spans electro-catalysis, crystal growth and physiological processes. 


About the Winner


Patrick Unwin established the Warwick Electrochemistry and Interfaces Group in 1992, following his appointment as lecturer, and has been Professor of Chemistry since 1998. He was founding director of the EPSRC-Warwick Centre for Analytical Science (2008) and is currently a EuropeanResearch Council Advanced Investigator (2010-15). He serves on several editorial boards and is editor of Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry. His interests are in new methods for investigating electrochemical and interfacial processes, with a major focus on the development and application of high resolution multi-functional imaging techniques.

Patrick received his BSc degree (Leverhulme Prize and Leblanc Medal) from the University of Liverpool in 1985 and PhD (supervisor Richard Compton) from the University of Oxford in 1989. He was a Dee Graduate Scholar at St. Hugh's College (1987-88) and Junior Research Fellow in Physical Science at Balliol College (1988-90). From 1990-91, he was a NATO Fellow with Allen Bard at the University of Texas at Austin. 

Patrick's previous awards include the Marlow Medal (1997), the Corday-Morgan Medal (2001) and the Barker Medal (Electrochemistry Interest Group) (2010). He is a Fellow of the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) and was the inaugural winner of the ISE Vetter Prize in 1999.
