International recognition for “quiet achiever”

Former DMTC Director, Emeritus Professor John Norrish, has been made a Fellow of the American Welding Society in recognition of his distinguished contribution to the discipline.

The AWS is the peak body for welding and joining technology in the United States, with about 70,000 members industry, national research labs, universities and training organisations from the US and around the world.

Being elected a Fellow of the Society is a recognition of the distinguished contribution of individual members in the field of welding science and technology, in John’s case over more than 50 years.

Earlier this year John was also made a Fellow of DMTC, at which time DMTC Chair Tony Quick acknowledged John for his “unquenchable energy, vitality, willingness and ability to get involved in the detail of so many of our critical programs.”

There are more details on the University of Wollongong’s website here.
