Pawel commented, 'This election means the world to me. It shows that the research we undertake in DPAG is recognised as important by my colleagues, mentors, and science-heroes. This honour gives me motivation to carry on, with more energy and devotion. I dedicate this achievement to my mother and my late father; it would not have been possible without their love and support.'
