Many thanks to all who took part, either presenting or attending to discuss the research, for making the event such a lively and interesting display of PhD research across the Faculty. Congratulations to all of the winners!

If you didn't get a chance to present your research this year, we will be holding the same event next year and will look forward to seeing some of you then!
