Sonotarg Director Professor Eleanor Stride has been awarded an OBE in the 2021 New Year’s Honours for Services to Engineering.

The honour follows her recent awarding of an Honorary Fellowship of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in October 2020. Eleanor has also been nominated one of the top 100 most influential Women in Engineering in both 2016 and 2019 and was, in 2017, made a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Speaking about the award Eleanor said: “I still feel quite overwhelmed but also even more motivated to drive forward our research and to continue to work closely with the Royal Academy to support and promote Engineering”
