Research Introductions Zoomposia
The College of Science & Engineering has grown significantly in recent years, but with the lockdown our new staff have had fewer opportunities to make new links and raise their profile. The Research Introductions Zoomposia was set up to help do just that.
Each Zoomposium presents 2-3 new researchers. Each presentation is five minutes and there may be questions after each session. Recordings last up to 40 minutes – if you haven’t joined in the Zoomposia so far, you can catch up with the presentations here.
