The inaugural School Postgraduate Conference was held on Wednesday 1st October. More than 30 of our Postgraduate students delivered presentations communicating their research during the action-packed event at UNSW's Colombo Theatres.
The event attracted around 80 attendees throughout the day, including School staff and students.
The presentations showcased the vibrant and dynamic research flowing from our Postgraduate cohort. The event also featured five plenary speakers, including Isaac Donnelly, Francis Hui and Anna Tomskova, who presented results from their recent papers in top international maths/stats journals. Jieyi He and Yuguang Wang both delivered talks which they recently presented at overseas conferences.
Director of Postgraduate Studies (Research), A/Professor David Warton, said of the event: “The Postgrad Conference demonstrated how fortunate we are in the School to have a team of talented and enthusiastic postgraduate students - doing really interesting research across a range of disciplines. And entertaining presenters too!”
The full-day event culminated in an after-party at the White House for attendees and speakers.
Congratulations to David Warton and his organising committee of Ashish Goyal, Boris Beranger and Yuehua Li for such a successful event!
