Date: 10th of July 2018
Location: London, UK
Audience: students and staff of CITY, University of London
Mr Mithun Murali Girija (ERS 15/CITY, University of London) was granted a Best Presentation Award for his oral presentation, as evaluated by the judges of the City SMCSE PhD Symposium 2018. The Symposium is the inaugural conference for PhD students in the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering; an opportunity to celebrate the research culture in the school. The 16 oral presentations and the approximately 20 poster presentations aimed to summarise the research conducted in different scientific areas (from Cybersecurity to mechanical engineering) in a manner accessible to a non-expert audience.
Mr Murali Girija (ESR15/City University of London) introduced his audience to the physics of cavitation and then he shared some of his research work on gear pump cavitation and its importance in the aviation industry. He also informed his audience about the Marie-Curie actions and the CaFE-project. His talk led to a lot of questions, all related to the ITN-projects: scholarships, training, mobility opportunities, application procedures and collaboration between industries and universities.
The event was followed by a summer party, where Mr Murali Girija received his award and enjoyed the appreciation of the audience.
