Daphne Jackson Trust names its 100th fellow

September 20, 2002

The Daphne Jackson Trust has named its 100th fellow since it was set up ten years ago.

Kimberley Willis, who has a PhD in chemistry from Sheffield University, was awarded the fellowship, which was named after Britain's first female professor of physics. It was set up to provide a two-year part-time postdoctoral position to those who have taken a break from a science or engineering-related career due to family commitments.

She will return to Sheffield to work on the synthesis of novel polymers that can be used in disposable electronic devices.
