What’s this lunchtime event about? Life as a research/PhD student can be quite a solitary experience, and this event aims to showcase one Imperial 600 member’s life as a second year PhD student from the Faculty of Engineering, where he is focusing on Industrial Ecology, and both Sustainable and Chemical Engineering. His work is related to elements of Imperial 600’s LGBT History Month programming this year, namely the event featuring Lord Oates and that focuses on Climate Change and self acceptance. Imperial 600 wants to showcase Adam so that other PhD students see the value in connecting with the Imperial 600 community, and is aware of the benefits of engaging with staff and graduate student networks at Imperial College.
Who should attend? Staff and students from ICL, both LGBT and allies alike, Research/PhD students from ICL and other universities, members of organisations like InterEngineering, a leading LGBT professional network for engineers., and finally, students and staff from the members of the LUKI) Network of schools ( Imperial College, LSE, UCL, King’s College).

About the Invited Guest: Adam Mason
Adam is an industrial ecology PhD student at Imperial College London, and he’s interested in the development of comprehensive natural capital modelling tools, to provide a robust and holistic approach to achieving sustainable development and environmental sustainability.
At Heriot-Watt, where he completed his MEng in Chemical Engineering with Oil & Gas Technology (IChemE accredited) with a first-class honours, he acquired a broad understanding of both practical and theoretical chemical engineering concepts. In addition to having graduated with a first-class honours (1st) degree he was awarded the Gordon Butters Memorial Prize for my Masters research project, focusing on membrane technology: ‘Experimental Development of Design Rules for Cell Separation’.
