Final year PhD student, Hazel Smith, from the University of Strathclyde has won the Academic Award, which was sponsored by the Energy Technology Partnership, at the Scottish Renewables Young Professionals Green Energy Awards. The event, held at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow last week, recognises up and coming green energy professionals in Scotland.
Hazel’s work on monitoring offshore wind construction noise is already being implemented by Scotland’s £511-million-a-year industry. She also spent three months analysing the predicted impact of the wind energy sector’s impact on marine mammal populations.
Three other academics were also nominated for the Academic Award, Maja Persson of the University of Edinburgh, Muhammad Imran Khan from Heriot-Watt University and Oliver Tulloch from the University of Strathclyde.
