The Crossland bursary, sponsored by Engineers Ireland, is awarded annually for the best paper from a postgraduate student from the island of Ireland who has completed one year of research in a field related to Mechanical Engineering. This year’s Crossland Symposium was held at Trinity College Dublin, and there were presentations from Queen’s University, TCD, DCU, UUJ, DIT, UCD and NUIG.

Conor’s research is based in the Stokes Institute and is supervised by Dr Tara Dalton and Professor Mark Davies.

Siobhan O’Leary and Daniel Mortell received the second and third prize in the postgraduate poster symposium, held in parallel with the Crossland symposium and open to any PhD student in a field related to Mechanical Engineering. Siobhan is co-supervised by Professor Tim McGloughin (Materials and Surface Science Institute) and Dr Barry Doyle (University of Western Australia) and Daniel is supervised by Dr. Conor T. McCarthy (Materials and Surface Science Institute).
