Congratulations to Bernal PhD student Eileen Courtney on winning both the audience favourite and runner-up prizes at the IoP’s 3 Minute Wonder Grand Final (3MW) at the Royal Institution, London. 3MW challenges researchers to explain their work in just three minutes, to a panel of established science communicators and an interested but non-specialist audience.  Eileen’s presentation was titled “2D materials and metals: a necessary combination”. 

Earlier in the year Eileen won the Rosse Medal, from the Institute of Physics (pictured here with Paul Hardaker, CEO, Institute of Physics, with her poster entitled “interactions between 2D transition metal dichalcogenides and metal atoms investigated via atomic resolution HAADF Scanning Transition Electron Microscopy”
