The Division of Computing Science and Mathematics organises an annual PhD Research Students Day at which all research students get an opportunity to showcase their work and obtain feedback from both academics and fellow students.
This year's was on 21 April 2015, and had 15 talks (not all students could manage to get to it), which were very well received. We award a prize for the best presentation each year, and this year it went to Adrian Worton, for his presentation entitled "Incorporating environmental factors into tick-borne disease models".
