Welsh Students at the British Conference of Undergraduate Conference

I attended Day 1 of the inaugural British Conference of Undergraduate Research today at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston. I gave the opening keynote and then saw some excellent student research posters over lunch.

These included a poster by Daniel Jackson (a student from Cardiff University) on his dissertation an investigation into the reliability of tidal turbines' for sustainable electricity generation (photo below).

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to stay for the other students presentations on the programme from Welsh institutions:
  • James Gardiner (Swansea Uni) The affect climate change on the Blaencwm landslide.
  • Nicky Evans (Swansea Uni) N170 activity in prosopagnosia and normals; an EEG study.
  • Wai Leung Sze (Swansea Uni) Safety in the railway domain.
  • James Walker (Swansea Uni) Visualisation of animal tracking data.
  • Desislava Terziyska (Cardiff Uni) "Two plastic surgeries for the price of one" or what makes up the 'perfect' Bulgarian.
  • Liam Betsworth (Swansea Uni) Audacious: a location based application for the iPhone that makes use of a virtual audio space.
  • Jordan Scoberg-Evans (Swansea Uni) Prosopagnosia in the perceptual "face/house" decision making paradigm.
  • Jessica Esa (Swansea Metropolitan Uni) Religion in classic fairy tales.
  • Jessica Lawson Hughes (Swansea Metropolitan Uni) Representations of women in modernist literature.
Well done to them all and their tutors for encouraging them to submit papers.
