Frederic Perras is the 2016 Raymond Andrew Prize recipient

Posted on Friday, May 20, 2016

Frederic Perras, formerly of the Bryce Group, has earned a trifecta of prestigious prizes for his Ph.D. thesis entitled, "Structural insights from the NMR spectroscopv of quadrupolar nuclei: exploiting electric field gradient and spin–spin coupling tensors”. Last year, he was awarded the Governor General’s Gold Medal in Science and Engineering in recognition of the most outstanding doctoral performance in science and engineering at the University of Ottawa. His thesis work also garnered international acclaim with the 2015 IUPAC-SOLVAY International Award for Young Chemists. Now, Fred has won the 2016 Raymond Andrew Prize from the Ampere Society. This highly competitive international prize in magnetic resonance has rarely been awarded to North Americans, and solidifies Fred's reputation as a future leader in his field. Fred published 26 papers with the Bryce group and was invited to write a review on his thesis topic for Pure and Applied Chemistry. Congratulations Fred!
