TUC Professor Georgios Christidis received the Jackson Award by the Clay Minerals Society

The MARION L. AND CHRISTIE M. JACKSON MID-CAREER CLAY SCIENTIST AWARD was presented to Dr. George Christidis, Professor, Economic Geology of Industrial Minerals Research Unit, Technical University of Crete, Greece, at the CMS annual meeting at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Professor Christidis’s original and scholarly research on bentonites has made a significant contribution to clay minerals science.

Of particular note is his work on the evaluation of the heterogeneity of smectites in bentonites and on a new method for determining the layer charge in K-smectites.

His research on the synthesis of pure high-added-value zeolites from fi ne-grained perlite waste is also significant.
