2016 Postgraduate Showcase Success

Congratulations to Devesh Mistry and Adam Churchman, both PhD students in the School of Physics and Astronomy, on their success in the 2016 University of Leeds Postgraduate Showcase.

The Postgraduate Showcase provides an opportunity to celebrate excellence in postgraduate research and the contribution made by the postgraduate research community to the research carried out across the University. Postgraduates have the opportunity to present at a high level to an audience which includes senior academics and University staff, postdoctoral researchers, PhD students and external guests.

400 people attended this year's showcase and there were 130 entries across four categories.

Vice-Chancellor, Sir Alan Langlands presented the prizes.

Devesh came second overall in the Postgraduate of the Year competition with his presentation 'Novel liquid crystal optical devices for the ageing eye', whilst Adam came third in the Three-Minute-Thesis competition with his entry 'Oil layer inside microbubbles: a novel production method, towards hydrophobic drug delivery.'

Well done to both.
