The IMI is pleased to announce the winners of our 2019 Undergraduate Research Experience Poster Competition.

Each year, students who have taken part in the Institute's research experience scheme are invited to produce a poster summarising the purpose of their research, how they went about it and their main findings.

The event is a great learning experience for aspiring academics, giving them an opportunity to learn how to communicate research and present it to a wider audience.

This year's posters were judged by members of the IMI Research Panel who were impressed by the high quality of submitted posters.

Following careful scoring of each poster, IMI's Deputy Director, Paul Shepherd, announced the winners of the £100 prize given to each of the three best posters.

Winners of the 2019 poster competition:

Samuel Cortinhas
Department of Mathematical Sciences
Poster title: A continuous approach to Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting

Andrea Ruan
Department of Mechanical Engineering
Poster title: Investigating the flow structure in gas turbine wheel spaces

Nathan Routledge
Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering
Poster title: Development of a control methodology for multibody systems incorporating nonlinear flexure couplings

Take part in IMI's Undergraduate Research Experience scheme

Next year, the IMI is offering around 20 funded opportunities for students to collaborate with an academic supervisor on a small research project.

For undergraduates, it's a fantastic opportunity to experience first-hand what it is like to conduct research, and for supervisors, it's an opportunity to conduct interdisciplinary research or explore a new research idea.
