Professor Omar Masera awarded Cheney Fellowship by University of Leeds | Cluster de Biocombustibles Sólidos

It is with great pleasure that we inform you that Dr. Omar Masera Cerutti, Head of the Group on Ecotechnology and Bioenergy Innovation at UNAM (GIEB-UNAM), and technical leader of the Solid Biofuels Cluster, has been chosen as the recipient of the prestigious Cheney Fellowship, from the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom.

The news has been released through the official website of the Faculty of Geography of the University, highlighting that “the Cheney Scholarship Scheme, funded by the generosity of Peter and Susan Cheney, is designed to enable talented researchers to spend a period of time working on research at the University of Leeds, exploring new research ideas and building new collaborations.”

Dr. Masera will participate in the consolidation of a partnership with the sustainable energy projects, led by Prof. Jon Lovett, from the same Faculty. This is why the scholarship will enable collaborations among the members of the research teams (PhDs and Postdocs), both from the University of Leeds and from UNAM.

This is not the first time that Dr. Masera has collaborated with the University of Leeds, as he previously participated in the Project “Integrated Low Carbon Energy Solutions for Remote Rural Areas”, led by Dr. Valerie Dupont, from the Faculty of Chemistry and Process Engineering.

The communication team congratulates Dr. Masera for this recognition, which joins a long list of academic achievements. We hope that the results of this fellowship continue to integrate efforts towards energy sustainability through ecotechnologies implementation to achieve this target.
