We were treated to fantastic presentations from SAMBa students who are starting their PhD research.
Transfer day provided a wonderful opportunity for staff and PGR students in the Department of Mathematical Sciences to hear from SAMBa students who are starting their PhD research. In a series of engaging presentations, seven students presented an overview of the preparatory work they have been doing and their planned research directions. The day also provided the opportunity to welcome members of cohort 10 who have joined SAMBa this year, they introduced themselves and told us a little bit about their background and research interests.
