Intifar Chowdhury has taken out the prize for the Best Oral Presentation in the ANU's 2018 Student Research Conference.
Held over the 19-20th July, the student-led research conference showcased the research activities, leadership experience and innovative ideas of current Undergraduate, Honours and Masters students.
Intifar is a current Honours student in the School of Politics and International Relations, and presented data from her forthcoming thesis which examines the role of gender in Westminster cabinet appointments.
Speaking of her current research Intifar paid thanks to the School and her thesis supervisor, Dr Matt Kerby. "In the Honours Program, so far, I have gained extensive research training and developed both organizational and time-management skills, which best complement my lifestyle, passion and interests. SPIR is home to top-notch intellectuals from diverse backgrounds and disciplines. It comprises a supportive environment where brilliant thinkers are always willing to lend a helping hand. I highly recommend SPIR for those aiming to gain first-class research experience in one of the top colleges in the world."
