The Graduate Women Scotland Research Presentation Day was hosted by the GWSEast branch and held in Dundee on the 21 April. We welcomed eight women PhD students from around Scotland to present their work. Happy feet, heritage tourism, film makers from the Islands, and the maths of cancer were just a few of the topics.
Every other year, Graduate Women Scotland puts a call out for female PhD students to present, and this year 75 notes of interest were received and 35 submitted abstracts were submitted. The finalists chose to present were Joanna Rodgers, Vasiliki Bitsouni, Rania Edris, Rachael Sibson, Anne Scrimgeour, Michelle Lawrie, Shona Main and Kirsty Graham who came from the Universities of Dundee, Highlands & Islands, Robert Gordon, Aberdeen, Glasgow and St Andrews.
