Professor Alexandra (Sasha) Turchyn and Dr Lee de-Wit are among 12 Cambridge academics recognised for their contribution to teaching excellence across the University today.

The annual Pilkington Prizes are awarded to individuals who make a substantial contribution to the teaching programme of a Department, Faculty or the University as a whole.

Both Fellows were recognised for their passion, dedication and world-leading contributions to teaching.

Mary Hockaday, Master of Trinity Hall, said: “There is nothing more important than teaching students brilliantly so they can reach their potential for academic excellence, so it is wonderful to see two Trinity Hall Fellows awarded a Pilkinton prize for teaching this year.

“I congratulate Dr de-Wit and Professor Turchyn for this accolade. These awards remind us that brilliance, dedication and creativity in educating our students doesn’t go unnoticed.”
