Tyndall recently celebrated the winner and finalists of the 2022 Postgraduate Publication of the Year competition, sponsored by X-Celeprint.
Congratulations to our 2022 winner; Richard Murray, with the publication “Direct-write formation of integrated bottom contacts to laser-induced graphene-like carbon”.
On receiving the award and upon reflection of his experience, Richard said:
“The Postgraduate Research Publication of the Year acts as a fantastic platform to push you to take a step back and consider your work objectively, not as your manuscript, but as a real and meaningful contribution to your subject area. For me, and for many of my colleagues, I think it is easy to get lost in the challenges of the work and not take the time to acknowledge that we are making good progress. Submitting for the Postgraduate Research Publication of the Year can serve as a route towards understanding the value of your contributions. Further, it can act as a spotlight on your work, granting additional attention both externally and within Tyndall which can help foster further collaborations.“
The competition enables students to showcase their outstanding contributions to Tyndall’s Research Excellence in their chosen fields.
Alin Mihai Fecioru, Senior Program Manager, X-Celeprint commented,
“X-Celeprint is honoured to support these highly committed researchers and their pivotal work in graphene-like carbon, tuneable microwave generation and sustainable materials. Their achievements reflect their passion for research excellence and Tyndall's pursuit of pushing the frontiers of research. Congratulations to all the awardees!”
Dr Fatima Gunning, Head of Graduate Studies at Tyndall, praised the entries, saying:
"Here at Tyndall, our students really are the foundations of our research excellence and the annual Postgraduate Research Publication of the Year competition offers them a fantastic window of opportunity to showcase that their excellence. In this year’s competition, our PhD students submitted exceptional publications - congratulations to all!"
Well done to everyone involved and congratulations to all of our winners and finalists on their achievements this year. Thank you to our sponsor X-Celeprint.
