One of the PhD students in my team, Davide Zilli, won the silver medal (second place) at the SET for BRITAIN 2015 competition at the House of Commons in London. Competing against 59 other PhD students, postdocs and early-career researchers from around Great Britain, Davide presented his poster to researchers and politicians. His poster was on his research into the use of smartphones for biodiversity monitoring, in particular the hunt for the New Forest Cicada. His success also gained him a £2000 prize!

Miss Angieszka Dzielendziak, from the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton, was awarded the bronze medal.
