PGRs Emily Glover and Vicky Kyrimi at Phononics 2019

Second-year PGR Emily Glover and fourth-year PGR Vicky Kyrimi presented at Phononics 2019– a biannual conference series that started in 2011. This year’s conference ran from 3rd to 7th June, and was held in Tucson, Arizona.

Emily presented a poster, entitled ‘Tunable Magnetoelastic Phononic Crystals’, and Vicky presented a talk on  ‘A Metasurface comprising Spiral shaped Local Resonators for Surface Acoustic Waves’. This is what Emily said of her experience:

The conference was my first experience presenting my research internationally, and was a great opportunity to meet and learn from some of the top professors in the Phononics community. The conference included a half-day excursion to visit the local desert museum, to learn more about Tucson and the famous Saguaro cactus that can only be found in Arizona, as well as a session for early career researchers about networking skills.

Vicky said of her experience:

I’m happy to mention that the work I presented at this conference was accepted for publication. I attended the conference banquet which was a great opportunity for networking with people in my field.
