Each month, alternating between Cambridge and UCL, CDT students attend a seminar. This is a great opportunity for MRes students to learn about the breadth of photonics research across both universites by listening to presentations from CDT PhD students and invited guests from industry.

Following student feedback, starting last October, attendees at seminar talks were invited to complete a form during the seminars to assess the quality of student seminar talks on a range of criteria including graphic display, presentation content, audibility, eye contact and enthusiasm. The presenter with the highest overall average mark would win the inaugural prize for Best Student Seminar Presentation of the Year.

On 2nd July at the final seminar of this academic year, it was announced that Gemma Bale, a UCL CDT PhD student in the Biomedical Optics Research Laboratory supervised by Dr Illias Tachtsidis is the winner of the Prize. She won a tablet device and was presented with a Certificate. Many congratulations to Gemma on her excellent presentation that she gave back in January on her PhD research titled 'In-Vivo Measurements of Cerebral Metabolic Changes in Neonates using Broadband Near-Infrared Spectroscopy.
