Well the Bridge and Concrete Research in Ireland (BCRI) conference, held on 6/7 September 2012, and co-chaired by myself and Dr Alan O'Connor of Trinity College Dublin seemed to go very well. There has been very positive feedback and some very good suggestions for future events. I won the Young Researcher Award (from an independent panel of course!), and it was jointly award to Dr Jamie Goggins of NUI Galway. The ‘Young Researcher Award’ was established by the BCRI conference to recognise the work of researchers who are aged less than 35 years  and who have made substantial contribution to knowledge in the field; have achieved international esteem; and have developed an independent research career.  It is the only award of its kind on the island of Ireland and this year was presented for the first time. Dublin Institute of Technology is very pleased with this (as am I!) and it made the home page of the website on 18 September 2012 (see below). For more information see the conference website www.bcri.ie and the DIT news page for the item here.

  • Many congratulations on your award!
    I’ll also take a quick moment here to congratulate you on your great blog and website – It’s interesting to see how much content you’ve shared in here, very inspirational.

  • Thanks Eva! And well done on your own website – it’s a great resource of advice and information for postgrads in structural engineering. I’m sure I’ll see you at the IABSE conference in Rotterdam in May 2013!
