Sam Hile wins the 2015 UNSW Science Postgraduate Research Competition
Sam Hile, a Physics PhD student, was one of three winners in the 2015 UNSW Science Postgraduate Research Competition last week.
Over 80 research students form the Faculty of Science participated in this annual event. They had to present a poster describing their research, and also give a one minute talk about their work.
Sam is conducting his research in the Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology, under the supervision of Scientia Professor Michelle Simmons. His poster and talk described his investigations into the quantum behavior of electrons within transistors.
Sam’s prize can be used for travel to international conferences or research visits. He will also represent the Faculty at UNSW’s Three Minute Thesis Competition in September.
