The Division committee noted the competitiveness of the most recent Medal round and commended Tim on his research excellence and service to the Physical Chemistry community.
"It's a great honour to be recognised in this way. Many of my mentors and scientific heroes are previous recipients,” Tim said.
"This is also recognition of the fabulous students and collaborators I have had the pleasure to work with - they make physical chemistry so enjoyable."
Previous winners of the Medal include Tim’s fellow Exciton Science Chief Investigator, University of Melbourne Professor Emeritus Ken Ghiggino.
