The award committee is pleased to announce that Ying Wang, University of Manchester, has been selected the recipient of the 2021 CSTE Outstanding Young Researcher Award. The award was established in 2017 to recognize young scientists with research excellence in composite materials, with special consideration for those who have made outstanding contributions to the journal of CSTE.

Dr. Ying Wang received her B.Eng. in Materials from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2011, followed by a Ph.D. degree in Composite Materials from The University of Manchester in 2015, under the supervision of Regius Prof. Philip Withers and Prof. Costas Soutis. At present, she is engaged in post-doctoral research work on fibre-reinforced composite materials at the Henry Moseley X-ray Imaging Facility, Henry Royce Institute, The University of Manchester, UK.

The award ceremony will be held online and included in the program of ICFC8, the 8th International Conference of Fatigue of Composites (June 23-25) www.gest.unipd.it/ICFC8.

The award committee would also like to thank all applicants and readers for their attention and support to this award.

The following publications authored by the winner in 2019 and 2020 are accessible to view on Science Direct:
