The Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences held a Third Year Research Competition that showcased the research of PhD students from every department. The aim of the competition is to provide postgraduate students with a platform for presentation of their work to a non-specialist audience and to increase the interest in and knowledge of third year postgraduate research. During the event attendees were able to ask questions followed by a public vote for the best presentation.

The Department of Informatics submitted strong entries competing against those from the other departments in the faculty. We are happy to announce that two Informatics students received two major awards:

Popular Vote Award

Sara Tandon from the Human Centred Computing group received the Popular Vote Award for her project 'Individual Differences Affect Performance and Understanding of Data Visualisation.'
