'A Slice of Research' seminar series, organized by Peter King, (PhD Programme Economics), will see researchers sharing subjects as diverse as slavery, feeling full, banking crises and Tourette syndrome, over a slice of pizza and a drink.

With over a dozen speakers signed up so far, Peter has been delighted with the response so far to his idea:

Presenting your research ideas at an early stage to get feedback on your direction and style is a valuable step in research but many researchers lack the opportunity or confidence to present in formal settings. With generous support from my Faculty and the Doctoral College, I have organised this informal series to help doctoral students to practice and communicate their research. All doctoral students are more than welcome to come along, support their colleagues, learn about the huge range of engaging research we're undertaking.
