Student Mentor & Academic Research Talks
The Student Mentor and Academic Research Talks (SMART) provide an opportunity for young postgraduate researchers (MSc and Ph.D.) to showcase their research and gain experience in public speaking. For the delegates, it’s a great way to be exposed to diverse new material and cutting-edge science. Five postgraduate students will be delivering their talks to us from 1pm on Tuesday afternoon. The talks are brief, approximately 12 minutes each with some time for questions at the end. We’ll hear about ecology, landscape architecture, forest pathology and urban forestry. Be sure to read the student bios and abstracts to learn more about what’s involved.
