Summer Research Student Thomas Brown wins the AMSI/Cambridge University Press Prize for 2013
Congratulations to Thomas Brown, jointly supervised by Ed Green and Ben Binder who won the AMSI/Cambridge University Press Prize for the best talk at the 2013 CSIRO Big Day In, recently held this month.
After completion of their summer project, vacation scholars must submit a project report which summarises the project and addresses the nature of the topic, methods of investigation, results found, and benefits of the experience. The scholars then present a 15-minute presentation about their project at the CSIRO Big Day In (BDI). This experience enables students to meet and socialise with their peers, gain experience presenting to their colleagues and supervisors and learn about a range of careers in science by interacting with several CSIRO scientists (including mathematicians) in a discussion panel.
This is a very pleasing result for Thomas, Ed and Ben as well as for the School of Mathematical Sciences. Well done Thomas.
