Professor Colin O’Dowd from NUI Galway and Professor Colin Latimer from Queen’s University Belfast have both been presented with prizes at the Institute of Physics (IOP) annual awards in London. At the awards ceremony last Wednesday, Professor Latimer received the Phillips award in recognition of his service to the IOP. He has been professor of physics at Queen’s since 1997, while he has also taught at Rice University in Houston, Texas, and at Tokyo Metropolitan University in Japan. His research interests are in the areas of atomic and molecular processes and interactions. Professor Latimer has served in many roles with the IOP, including acting as treasurer of the institute and chair of the Atomic and Molecular Interaction group and the Institute of Physics in Ireland (1980-89).
