Tyndall Post-Grads Impress in the 2019 Postgraduate Paper Competition

Together with sponsor Catalyst Analog Devices, Tyndall celebrated the winners and finalists of the 2019 Postgraduate Paper Competition this week.

Dr. Fatima Gunning, Senior Staff Researcher & Acting Head of Grad Studies at Tyndall, praised the entries, saying:

This was an exceptionally competitive year with outstanding articles and publications in a cross-section of high-impact journals showcasing Tyndall’s research breadth and excellence.

This year’s panel of eight judges found it particularly difficult to select from the high standard of submitted papers, and for the first time awarded two winners, two runners up, and recognised the remaining eight entrants as finalists.
