Spotlight on Graduate Research

Congratulations to everyone who took part in our online event to show case some of the incredible research being undertaken by our DPhil students.

Middle Common Room (MCR) President Ricardo De Luca E Tuma opened the event by talking about graduate life during the pandemic. MCR Academic Representative, Chenying Liu, then introduced four of our graduate students who each gave a presentation about their research:

Jacinto Mathe (Anthropology, 2020): ‘Bones and ecology in the southern African Rift Valley: implications for our understanding of human evolution’

Florence Smith (History, 2018): ‘A Step Towards Equality? – The Introduction of Coeducation at the University of Oxford in 1974’

Ollie Shorthose (Engineering Science, 2019): ‘Soft Robotics, the future of safe human-robotic interface’

Jana Hunter (History, 2020):  ‘”Nature and Art, Present and Past”: Travel Writing, Prague’s Panorama, and Czech Modernist Consciousness, 1815-1848’

The team received some excellent feedback including, “Thank you everyone – completely fascinating and really stimulating – thank you for the effort you put in to your presentations”.
