Qi Liu (Jerry ) has received the prestigious 2010 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Chinese Students Study Abroad by the China Scholarship Council.

This award was founded by the Chinese government in 2003 with the purpose of rewarding the academic excellence of Chinese students overseas who are not funded by the Chinese Government. Only students with outstanding academic performance are considered by the award selection panel. There are currently more than 120,000 Chinese students studying in the UK, so the competition for this prestigious award is fierce. The University of Nottingham has two winners this year, and Mr Qi Liu is the only winner from The Faculty of Engineering. Mr Qi Liu received the award officially from the China H.E. Ambassador at a ceremony held at the Embassy of China in London on 9th May.

Mr Qi Liu is on the third year of his PhD studies in the Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage (CICCS). He has been working on CCS under the supervision of Prof. Mercedes Maroto-Valer since he was doing his Master degree in 2007. He was awarded MSc in Chemical Engineering with Distinction in 2008. As a consequence of his outstanding performance, Mr Liu was awarded the Dean of Engineering Scholarship to conduct his PhD. He was the first Chinese student to receive this Scholarship. Mr Liu performance during his PhD is outstanding and has published several refereed journal and conference papers.

Congratulations Jerry on a well deserved award!
