The University of Western Australia's reputation for research excellence has been recognised with the award of ten prestigious national Future Fellowships. Two of the recipients are ECM Faculty members: Winthrop Professor Mark Cassidy and Professor David White.
The Faculty is delighted to offer our congratulations to both winners, who once again proved COFS' determination in achieving international excellence.
The following projects will be funded under the ARC Future Fellowships scheme:
1) Winthrop Professor Mark Cassidy - "Engineering solutions for the next generation of offshore oil and gas infrastructure"
2) Professor David White - "Seabed engineering to unlock Australia's deepwater oil and gas resources"
UWA acting Vice-Chancellor Professor Bill Louden said the Future Fellowships recognised the value of UWA research and researchers to the nation and internationally.
"Professors Cassidy and White are recognised internationally for their work on offshore foundation systems". Professor Louden said.
The four-year fellowships are worth up to $740,000 each.
The Australian Research Council's Future Fellowships promote research in areas of critical national importance by giving outstanding researchers incentives to conduct their research in Australia.
