LIV.DAT students present research at University of Liverpool’s poster day
On the 21st of March the Faculty of Science and Engineering organized a postgraduate researcher poster day, open to all second year PhD students, in which a group of LIV.DAT students took part.
Alberto Acuto and Alex Hill from the Astrophysics Research Institute (LJMU) and Selina Dhinsey, Philip Marshall and Ron Collins from the University of Liverpool’s particle physics research cluster each presented posters summarizing the research carried out in the first year of their PhD.
The event was held at the Guild of Students’ Mountford Hall in University Square, hosting around 100 students from several disciplines ranging from engineering, physics and mathematical science.
The diversity of posters and presenters gave the opportunity for undergraduate and postgraduate students, alongside University staff to engage and become more aware of the interesting and varied research that is currently studied at the University of Liverpool. This variety is fundamental in the growth of a researcher because it’s always good to explore other research fields, from which techniques and ideas may be applicable to your own research or methodology. Also, creating and presenting a poster for a non-specialist audience is a good training for researchers as it helps one to focus on simpler concepts, taking away some technicalities and going straight to the point of the message you would like to deliver to your audience.
