A TOP academic from Sheffield University has joined a prestigious list of the world’s most accomplished scientists after being made a Fellow of the Royal Society.

Professor of Theoretical Chemistry Patrick Fowler joins more than 1,400 of the UK and Commonwealth’s most distinguished scientists, engineers and technologists to be recognised.

Professor Fowler said: “I feel very pleased and honoured. It is recognition of my research by the oldest scientific academy in the world, which includes scientists who work across all disciplines.

“I knew I had been nominated, but it was still quite a shock to be elected. There are hundreds of nominations across the sciences every year, and in any one year perhaps only three or four chemists are elected.”
