Success for the School at UKMHD 2017

Saturday 3rd June, 2017

The annual UK Magnetohydrodynamics (UKMHD) meeting for 2017 took place at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st April. Mathematics postgraduate student Jamie Quinn attended the event and won the Early Career Researcher Outstanding Poster Award for his poster. Jamie explains:

"Being part of such a small field, UKMHD is a wonderful time to come together with fellow PhD students and researchers from all over the UK and interact both intellectually in talks and poster sessions and also socially, which for me is where some of the real collaboration potential comes from. This year I was ridiculously pleased to win the early career researcher outstanding poster award for my poster on how introducing anisotropic viscosity in solar simulations can dramatically change the predicted heating."
