NSIRC PhD student Farnoosh Farhad, has been awarded a grant from the Educational Awards Committee of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) to present a research paper at the International Conference on Tomography of Materials and Structures (ICTMS).
Farnoosh used her grant to attend the ICTMS 2017, which took place in Lund University, Sweden in June 2017. Whilst in Sweden, Farnoosh also visited MAX IV Laboratory in Lund, which has the highest quality X-Ray.
Farnoosh’s application comprised of a description of her NSIRC work, defining the novelty of the approach described in the conference paper, and outlining the important alignment to industry needs.
She is now required to provide a written report and make a presentation in lieu of the report to the IMechE Awards Committee.
Farnoosh commented, ‘I would like to thank TWI for the support I received whilst submitting my application. The application was made with the kind support of my colleagues John Wintle, Matthew Haslett and my TWI supervisor Dr David Smyth-Boyle.’
Farnoosh’s successful application is an example of what can be achieved by NSIRC PhD students on a global stage.
The importance of positive collaboration between the students, their academic and industry supervisors, fosters research that is both academically significant and has real world importance. It is this network that is an integral part of every NSIRC degree.
