Congratulations to St Hugh’s alum Professor Philipp Kukura (MChem, 1998) on being named the 2019 Blavatnik Chemistry Laureate!

He said the award recognised the incredible “hard work, creativity and perseverance of my students and postdoc”, who made his scientific work “possible in the first place” and said he was “grateful and humbled”.

Warm congratulations from all at St Hugh’s to Professor Kukura on this exceptional achievement.

His research focuses on “the development and application of new optical methodologies to study structure and dynamics down to nanometer length scales” and aims to push the boundaries “of what we can measure with light.”
