Nic Rhodes (78/83) awarded MBE

National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) Research Fellow Dr Dominic Rhodes was awarded an MBE in the New Year's Honours list. The award - which, in full, makes Dominic a Member of the Order of the British Empire - is in recognition of his services to science.

Dominic said:  "I was shocked and honoured to receive the news of my MBE. I have always been fascinated by science and its application to solving real problems and I've been fortunate that my career has allowed me to combine being a practising scientist with sharing my passion with a new generation of entrants to the science and technology sector. Both aspects of my work require a major team effort to be successful and I've always been lucky to work with some fabulous colleagues who combine great knowledge and tremendous enthusiasm."
