Congratulations to our alumna Professor Sue Hartley (Biochemistry, 1980), Director of the York Environmental Sustainability Institute, on being awarded an OBE.

The honour was awarded for services to ecological research and public engagement.

Professor Hartley said: “I am absolutely thrilled and delighted to receive this honour and to be recognised for my contribution to ecology in this way. I’ve always been passionate about the importance of ecological research, particularly given the global environmental challenges we are all facing at the moment. I’m very proud and grateful, and I’d like to thank the many wonderful colleagues who have supported my career for their contribution to this achievement.”
