2022 Perse Rouse Award winners announced
The winners of the 2022 Perse Rouse Award have been praised for the quality of their research investigations.
The Rouse Award programme is an internally-assessed independent research programme for Lower Sixth students in which subject specialist teachers help to guide their investigations.
A panel featuring renowned academics, including Dr Matthew Kenzie (2005), Dr Alex Loktionov (2011), Professor Liz Harper, Professor Wolfgang Emmerich and Dr Fran Henson, assessed the shortlisted entries before deciding on the winners.
The 2022 winners are:
• Evelyn Marshall – Examine how Charles V of France utilised visual culture to construct royal authority in medieval Paris.
• Sophie Chiang – Machine learning for table tennis match prediction.
• Jemima Fung – How can biomimicry be used in architecture to improve the sustainability of a building?
Speaking on behalf of the judging panel, Professor Emmerich said: “The panel was very impressed with the quality of all the papers that we read and the viva voce that we held with the authors.
“The three papers that were awarded a prize stood out as the authors all did original research and showed that they could apply it. Many congratulations to Evelyn, Sophie and Jemima on behalf of the entire Rouse panel 2022.”
Look out for more details about our award winners and their research later this term.
