Robert Campbell Postgraduate Prize

Cristina Evans, a second year postgraduate student who is researching the dynamics of water availability to riparian trees, was awarded the Robert Campbell Postgraduate Prize in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences (DEES), in recognition of outstanding progress in research and for significant contributions to the research community during 2014-15. Robert Campbell was a research student in DEES who sadly died in August 2013. This award for research postgraduates in the Department was established in his memory.

The photograph shows Cristina being presented with the award by Professor Peter Cawood (Head of Department) in front of a flourishing oak tree at Andrew Melville Hall, planted there in memory of Rob by the students he cared for while serving as an assistant warden.
