Associate Professor Alistair Price was recently awarded P-status by the National Research Foundation – a rating awarded to young researchers (40 years or younger) who have held their doctorate or equivalent qualification for less than five years at the time of application, and who are recognised as having the potential to establish themselves as researchers within a five-year period after evaluation, based on their performance and productivity of quality research outputs during their doctoral studies and/or early post-doctoral careers.

The department is proud to have academics of this calibre in its ranks, and we await confirmation of other recent NRF ratings awarded to our academic staff.
