Our very own Mateo Gutierrez will be presenting at the upcoming Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) Young Researchers’ Conference to be hold in London. Last year, Mateo was awarded the 1st price during the Australia IStructE Young Researchers’ Conference for his presentation entitled “Design of fire safe bamboo structures.”
In 2018, the Institution is celebrating two decades of supporting young researchers and future structural engineers. The 20th conference is a fantastic opportunity for PhD students or first year post-doctoral researchers to present their research to industry representatives, academics and fellow researchers. 23 researchers have been selected to give either an oral or poster presentation at the conference, to be held on 10 April 2018 at Institution HQ, London. Prizes will be awarded on the day, including the People’s Award for the most interesting oral presentation, decided by the audience. The event is also a great chance to get ideas, share advice and network with industry professionals and with peers.
