We revealed in August that Scientia Professor Trevor McDougall was announced the recipient of a prestigious Petersen Excellence Professorship from the Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel.

The Petersen Foundation recognises leading international scientists for excellence in their field. 

Professor McDougall spent most of September in Kiel, where he delivered a course of six lectures to graduate students.

Prof McDougall was conferred his award at the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel last Wednesday, following his public lecture on “The Ocean’s Role in Climate: what we know, and what we don’t know”. 

A very big congratulations to Trevor!
