III-V optoelectronic foundry Compound Semiconductor Technologies Global Ltd (CST Global) of Hamilton International Technology Park, Blantyre, near Glasgow, Scotland, UK has welcomed Adam McKenzie to its research and development team, where he will commence a PhD in silicon photonics. His position is supported by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 (originally established in 1850 by Queen Victoria to organize the first world trade fair, the Great Exhibition in London, and which founded the Victoria and Albert Museum, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Royal Albert Hall, Imperial College, Royal College of Art and the Royal College of Music).

The Royal Commission’s supplemental charter is to “increase the means of industrial education and extend the influence of science and art upon productive industry”. It hence awards about 35 postgraduate Fellowships and Scholarships each year for advanced study and research in science, engineering, the built environment and design. The award of an Industrial Fellowship covers all university fees, 50% of salary costs, and includes funds to cover travel expenses.

McKenzie grew up in Blantyre, attended St John Ogilvie High School in Burnbank, and is about to complete his Master’s Degree in Chemical Physics at the University of Glasgow. Richard Hogg (Professor of Photonics at the University of Glasgow) and Dr Thomas Slight (research engineer at CST Global) will be joint supervisors of his PhD.

“The Royal Commission award has allowed me to do my PhD as an industrial placement, gaining both commercial and academic experience as I study,” notes McKenzie. “I am looking forward to working in the rapidly growing photonics industry and with the team at CST Global in particular.”
