2019 RACI Rennie Memorial Medal winner is Associate Professor Debbie Silvester-Dean.

She works to improve electrochemical sensors to make people safer. Her sensors can monitor oxygen levels in confined spaces and detect ammonia leaks in refrigeration systems, among other applications. The miniaturised, affordable designs could make them more usable in everyday situations.
