Doctoral College Conference 2020 (22-23 June 2020)

I was one of the main organisers for the University of Surrey Doctoral College’s flagship conference with over 300 attendees. It gave Postgraduate Researchers an opportunity to present their work to the research community at the University. It featured keynote talks, workshops and a career panel.

Holding this event early on in the Covid-19 pandemic was an organisational challenge but very well received. It gave attendees a welcomed break from their routines and inspired them with a range of exciting research. Our Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Research & Innovation, Prof. David Sampson called it “the best DC conference ever”.

I am interested how stellar streams are affected by time-dependent dark matter halos.
