Dr. David McLagan honoured with International Emerging Researcher Award for groundbreaking mercury studies at ICMGP 2024

Published on: 2024-05-17

Dr. David McLagan is the winner of the (International level) Emerging Research Award Winner for research on Mercury presented at the International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant (ICMGP) in July 2024.

The Emerging Researcher Award is awarded at the ICMGP to recognize the outstanding contributions made by emerging researchers in mercury research. Every ocean-inspired mandala produced in honour of this Award is to be a unique representation of handmade artwork, with the fused glass round disc on the metal axis stand being the cohesion of the Awards to be given in perpetuity. The beauty of the artwork of this Award therefore lies in the interpretation by the host country, as well as that of the recipient of the Emerging Researcher Award in Mercury as a Global Pollutant receiving the ocean-inspired mandala, as a keepsake.
