Join the Faculty of Social Science & Public Policy (Department of Geography, School of Global Affairs) for a celebration of the scientific achievements of Professor Mario Molina. Mario Molina, Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California San Diego, was the first Mexican-born citizen to receive the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. Awarded in 1995, Professor Molina, along with collaborators Paul Crutzen and Sherwood Rowland, received the Prize for their ground-breaking work to discover the ozone-depleting impact of Chloroflurocarbons (CFCs).
At this special event, Professor Molina will reflect on his work, delivering a lecture on 'Climate Change: Science, Policy & Risks', before taking questions from the audience and a vote of thanks from Jonathan Shanklin, Emeritus Fellow at the British Antarctic Survey. Professor Molina will then be presented with an honorary degree by King's College London, in recognition of his outstanding scientific achievements.
A drinks reception follows, for all attendees.
Places at this event are limited and registration is essential, via Eventbrite.
