Our very own Philipp Wanner has been awarded the Adrien Guébhard-Séverine prize for his PhD Thesis!

Dr. Beth Parker and Steve Chapman were both instrumental in the work that Philipp did for his PhD Thesis in “Isotope fractionation due to diffusion and sorption of chlorinated hydrocarbons and its implications for identifying reactive processes in aquifer – aquitard systems”.

The Adrien Guébhard-Séverine prize is awarded annually or every two years by the Faculty of Sciences to a PhD student from the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland who has completed a PhD thesis in the field of hydrogeology or geothermal energy.

The prize honours the memory of Dr. Adrien Guébhard-Séverine (1849-1924), a native of Neuchâtel (Switzerland), an associate professor of physics at the Faculty of Medicine of Paris, France, as well as a geologist and prehistorian.

Congratulations Philipp, well done!
