DREAM PhD student Matt North, studying at Cranfield University was part of the group from Cranfield University visiting Buckingham Palace to receive Cranfield’s recent Queens Anniversary Prize in soil science. The prize recognises over 40 years of scientific research and teaching expertise in soil science, and the collection of British and International soil data and archives held at the university. To receive the award, the Palace asked for students to join the staff and Matt, whose research has a strong soils focus, was one of those selected for this honour. Matt’s thesis is entitled ‘The impact of tree-related ground movement on water infrastructure failure’.
