Students come together for 2024 CDT Summer Conference

Students from the Graphene NOWNANO Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) based in Manchester and Lancaster have come together for their annual CDT summer conference. The summer event took place over 4 days at the beautiful De Vere Cranage Estate in Cheshire.

A number of guest speakers were invited from across academia and industry, providing opportunities for students to meet peers, network, and discuss cutting-edge research.

The packed programme of events included student talks, guest speakers, poster sessions, workshops, and a question-and-answer panel with some of our alumni. Social events included a pub quiz, a board games tournament and a BBQ night.

Prizes were awarded for the best presentation and best poster. Congratulations to our winners!

Best Presentation went to Daria Dumitriu for her talk
"Effect of Electron-Electron Interactions on Thermoelectric Transport Coefficients"

Best poster went to Varun Shah for his poster
"An Emergent Quantum-Well Pair-Potential in SrTiO3"

Thanks have been extended to everyone involved - particularly the committee, who worked extremely hard to make the event a success.
