Ally Evans won the Award for her ground-breaking project ‘ReefCrete: ecological engineering of artificial marine habitats’.

The Awards were launched by P1 Marine Foundation in 2012 to reward students in higher education who produce outstanding work that will help protect and conserve the marine environment.

“Ally’s entry was an excellent postgraduate application with a clearly focused multi-disciplinary and practical approach to the project”, said Sabrina Taseer, projects and development manager at P1 Marine Foundation. “We are delighted that our National Student Awards are giving prominence to exciting and valuable projects of this nature that go beyond research and analysis to develop solutions to environmental problems.”

The Awards will be presented in London in May, and the ceremony will give Ally an opportunity to showcase her project to an audience of academics, businesses and NGOs.
