David Brown, IChemE’s chief executive said: “These are well deserved honours and reflect their excellent contribution to the chemical engineering profession.

“Just 60 Fellows were elected by the Royal Academy of Engineering this year, which demonstrates how highly they are regarded in their fields.

“It’s also excellent to see two women chemical engineers being recognised for their achievements and the multi-national nature of chemical engineering that attracts leading professionals from across the world to become members of IChemE, and to live and work in the UK.”
