RPLAS researcher Margoth Cordova Castro is a PhD student at King’s College London.
Margoth attended Parliment on the 12th March to present her physics research to a range of politicians as part of STEM for BRITAIN 2018. Her poster was shortlisted from hundreds of applicants to appear in Parliament. (You can view the poster at the bottom of the page)
On presenting her research in Parliament, she said, “It’s an honor be part of this multidisciplinary event and meet brilliant young researchers and know about the very interesting research all around UK. Sharing with politicians some of the results we achieved with our everyday hard work with the same motivation: push the boundaries of knowledge and try to bring new ideas and solutions to the real problems we are currently facing.’
Stephen Metcalfe MP, Chairman of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee, said: “This annual competition is an important date in the parliamentary calendar because it gives MPs an opportunity to speak to a wide range of the country’s best young researchers.
“These early career engineers, mathematicians and scientists are the architects of our future and STEM for BRITAIN is politicians’ best opportunity to meet them and understand their work.”
The Parliamentary and Scientific Committee runs the event in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Institute of Physics, the Royal Society of Biology, The Physiological Society and the Council for the Mathematical Sciences, with financial support from the Clay Mathematics Institute, Research Councils UK, Warwick Manufacturing Group, Society of Chemical Industry, the Nutrition Society, Institute of Biomedical Science and the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research.11111printsTEMargoth
