2022 Lord Lewis Prize Winner
Professor Alastair Lewis, University of York and National Centre for Atmospheric Science
Awarded for pioneering research on the chemistry of materials with applications in renewable energy, leading to fundamental changes in our understanding of solid-state electrochemistry.
For the promotion and application of the chemical sciences to support development of evidence-based policy and regulation in the fields of air pollution and climate change.
Professor Lewis’s research aims to understand where pollution comes from, the impacts it has on health and the environment and how it can be reduced. This involves measurements made in the field and directly from sources such as vehicles, and the use of that data in models. A major part of his career has been spent assessing the impacts of different policies and interventions that have been introduced to address poor air quality and climate change.
