Unisa PhD Chem Student to Meet Nobel Winners at Germany’s Elite Gathering

Dr. Bambesiwe May, a recent chemistry PhD graduate from Unisa, is moving to Germany.

May has been picked as one of eight young South African scientists to attend a special meeting with Nobel Prize winners.

The Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf), an official partner of the Lindau Foundation and funded by the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI), annually nominates young South African scientists to attend the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.

This seminar provides an opportunity for young scientists from around the world to interact with and learn from Nobel Laureates. Dr. May worked for Mintek as a researcher while completing her PhD in water-cleaning materials. She has received prizes for her scientific work and published research publications.

May also works as a geochemist with Digby Wells, one of Africa’s major environmental consultancy organizations concentrating on the resources sector.

Before traveling to Germany, Dr. May and the other young scientists will meet with previous guests to learn what to expect and how to make the most of the opportunity. They will also meet with government authorities to discuss representing South Africa at this major event.
