Malcolm McIvor winner 2024


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 technologies. The prize recognises excellence in terms of scientific achievement, creative thinking and/or engagement between academia and industry.

The CPACT Chair and the selection panel, comprised of academic and industrial members of the CPACT Industrial Management Board, decided that the winner was Alexander Rogers (pictured) from the University of Manchester for his work in the area of process control and analytics.

Alexander said "I am honoured to have been recognised for the Malcolm McIvor prize this year for my work in process modelling and optimisation. I would like to thank Dr Dongda Zhang for his continued support and our industrial partners at Unilever Port Sunlight, with whom I look forward to continuing our work and further engaging with the CPACT community."

Congratulations Alexander!
