Malcolm McIvor was one of the key people in ICI who helped establish
CPACT in 1997 and he played a prominent role in project supervision during the
early stages of CPACT’s activities. Malcolm enjoyed his engagement with CPACT
and has generously endowed a prize to be awarded annually to a researcher in
recognition of that individual’s achievement in process analytics and control
The prize recognises excellence in terms of
scientific achievement, creative thinking and/or engagement between academia
The CPACT Chairman and the selection panel,
comprised of academic and industrial members of the CPACT Industrial Management
Board, decided that we would have joint winners this year. The winners are Max
Mowbray from the University of Manchester and Cai Li Song from Imperial College
Max said “I am very happy to have jointly received the Malcolm McIver prize
this year. I would like to thank my PhD supervisors Dr. Dongda Zhang and Dr.
Antonio Del Rio Chanona, as well as Prof. Phil Martin for their support. I look forward to engaging with CPACT
further this year, as I undertake an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship at the
University of Manchester'”
Cai Li said “It is a great honour for me and I
am truly overwhelmed to receive the CPACT Malcolm Mclvor Prize. I am immensely
grateful to be recognized for my hard work. I would like to thank all of you
who believe in me and encourage me to get this far”.
