Richard Darton FREng, OBE

SOUE News congratulates Richard Darton on the award of OBE, for "services to engineering", in the June Birthday Honours. Richard's earlier career had been with Shell, mainly in the Netherlands. When the Department was planning courses in chemical engineering, on the initiative particularly of the late Peter Whalley, Shell seconded him to Oxford to help with this, in 1991. He later became a full member of the academic staff, eventually Professor, and was Head of Department from 2004 to 2009. In 2008-9 he was President of the Institution of Chemical Engineers, and is currently President of the European Federation of Chemical Engineers.
