One of our PhD students, Carmen Gorska, participated in the IRG49. The event took place from the 29th of April to the 3rd May 2018 in South Africa, Johannesburg. Ms. Gorska was awarded the “Ron Cockroft Award” which granted her a financial contribution to travel to the conference, sponsored by the International Research Group on Wood Protection (IRGWP).
Carmen successfully presented her research about timber structures and their fire performance. The conference was an opportunity to enrich her ideas, draw new research lines and widen the perspective of fire and timber both of hers and of UQ Fire.
