Two awards for her outstanding PhD thesis
Dr. Mariana Monteiro, Electrode-Electrolyte Interfaces - Minerva Fast-Track Group-Leader at the Interface Science Department, received two awards for her outstanding PhD thesis.
The first award was presented by the Dutch Catalysis Society (sectie Katalyse of the KNCV) during the 24th NCCC conference taking place in the Leeuwenhorst from March 6th to 8th, 2023. The committee of the DCS Thesis Award consists of industrial as well as academic experts, who awarded Dr. Mariana Monteiro the prize for her outstanding thesis. Prof. Moniek Tromp, chair of the Dutch Society for Catalysis delivered the DCS PhD Award to Dr. Monteiro during the Amcel Symposium, as she couldn´t attend the DCS Award ceremony in person.
The second award was presented by the Amsterdam Centre for Electrochemistry during the annual Amcel symposium on March 31st at Inholland University of Applied Sciences.
