Dr Kang Li, a lecturer in the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queen's University, has been presented with the Young Author Best Paper Award at the 2011 International Conference on Modelling, Identification and Control (ICMIC 2011), held in Shanghai, China in June.

The Award was for work on "Modelling of Melt Pressure Development in Polymer Extrusion: Effects of Process Settings and Screw Geometry", which Dr Li co-authored with his PhD student Chamil Abeykoon and colleagues from the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Queen's and the University of Bradford.  This work is part of the research linked to two current EPSRC projects on polymer extrusion for energy saving and process quality improvement and the £2.3 million Science Bridge project on sustainable energy and environment, for which Dr Li is the Principal Investigator or a main Co-Investigator.
