Marco Pinna received the Institute of Physics 2009 prize for the best PhD thesis in Computational Physics !
That is a remarkable achievement for UCLan as the competition was open to all students from an institution in either the UK or Ireland across the entire spectrum of computational physics, and last year, for instance, the prize went to the University of Cambridge !
IoP e-mail says:
“… the Institute of Physics Computational Physics Group Committee have chosen your thesis to be awarded our 2009 annual prize for the work that in our opinion contributes most strongly to the advancement of computational physics.”
