The Chalmers University of Technology Award for Research Supervisor of the Year 2016 is presented to Martin Andersson, Associate Professor at the department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.
As a supervisor, Martin emerges for his relation-oriented leadership that creates a dynamic and cohesive environment. He is focused on the professional and personal development of his PhDs encouraging the discussions upon all the aspects of the PhD process, and is actively seeking feedback from his students to improve his supervision. Martin facilitates students’ networking with other high-regarded research institutes, and encourages them to play a role in the international community.
In summary, Martin Andersson is a competent supervisor who leads his PhDs with dedication and enthusiasm towards high quality research. He inspires his PhD students, and we hope that with this prize, other supervisors and researches can be inspired in their role.
