Scientia Professorship Awarded for Professor David Waite - again
Professor David Waite re affirmed as UNSW Scientia Professor
Congratulations to Professor David Waite, leader of the BioGEMS group, for his reappointment to UNSW’s elite group– the Scientia Professors.
‘Scientia Professor’ is a special category of Professor that recognises outstanding research performance. The award is for six years and is based on recognition of past research eminence and ongoing research potential. At UNSW the number of Scientia Professors at any one time is limited so as to preserve this distinction for international eminence in research.
David was first awarded a Scientia Professorship in 2011, it is a special honour to be awarded the Scientia twice.
David has particular expertise in the behaviour of elements such as iron, manganese, copper, silver and uranium in natural and engineered systems. He has published over 300 peer-reviewed articles in a number of international scientific journals, and has been awarded over $16 million in research funding for his work on water quality and treatment technology issues.
