PhD student Eleni Bohacek will present a poster at the EPC Annual Congress Awards 2020

EPC Congress

The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering’s PhD student Eleni Bohacek has been shortlisted as one of the five finalists for the Hammermen Student Prize. 

Eleni’s poster was selected after a stringent vetting process and received excellent feedback from the judging panel. The poster is scheduled to be displayed at the Engineering Professors' Council (EPC) Annual Congress Awards 2020 (date TBC). 

The aim of the competition is to encourage and assist engineering students and apprentices who are studying for a University or College qualification with a view to subsequent employment in any branch of the engineering industries related to the origins of our Craft in metalwork and its modern day equivalent or equivalents such as mechanical or marine engineering.   

About Eleni
Eleni was born in Surrey and educated in Kent, United Kingdom. She graduated with a first-class degree in Earth Sciences from University College London in 2014, with a specialism in Planetary Science. Currently Eleni is a member of the UCL-Cambridge Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems, and completed her MRes degree in Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems in 2015. Her MRes research projects included simulations of lasers for a space-based interferometer, and the characterisation of inhomogeneities in InGaN-based light emitting diodes. In October 2015, she began her PhD studies in the “Optical Devices and Systems Laboratory” research group in collaboration with the Mullard Space Science Laboratory. She is currently working under the supervision of Dr David Selviah and Professor Andrew Coates on novel 3D image processing algorithms for data from the cameras on board the European Space Agency 2018 ExoMars Rover. 

Engineering Professors’ Council (EPC)
The Engineering Professors’ Council (EPC) is the representative body for engineering in higher education.  Our primary purpose is to provide a forum at which engineers working in UK higher education can exchange ideas about engineering education, research and other matters of common interest and to come together to provide an influential voice and authoritative conduit through which engineering departments’ interests can be represented to key audiences such as funders, influencers, employers, professional bodies and Government.
