Congratulations to Stefan Stein for winning an Honourable Mention in the 2021 Doctoral Researcher Awards
PhD student Stefan Stein has been awarded an Honourable Mention in the 2021 Doctoral Researcher Awards (DRA) in the category Natural & Life Sciences. DRA (http://drawards.org.uk) is a UK wide academic competition which is awarded annually to junior researchers who are pursuing (or have recently completed) doctoral degrees in the UK. Stefan was recognized for his work based on two papers advancing our understanding of high-dimensional random networks (joint with PhD supervisor Chenlei Leng).
The official award ceremony took place on 11th Sept 2021, featuring 2016 Nobel laureate Professor Duncan Haldane and Derrick Roberts (amongst others).
Stefan also won an IMS Hannan Graduate Student Travel Award and a Honorable Mention in ASA's SLDS Student Paper Award competition earlier this year. Congratulations on your hat trick, Stefan.
