Congratulations to George Galis for successfully completing his confirmation of candidature at University of Queensland earlier this month. In this way, George joins the cohort of mineAlloy students who completed their confirmation of candidature this year, including: Abhishek Jain at University of Queensland, and Vamshi Chennuri, Roshan Sasi and Eigor Petry at Deakin University. In addition, Guillaume Bruel was recently awarded a Masters degree from Deakin University for his work on ‘Precipitation hardening of Fe-Mn-C steels for wear resistance improvement’. We celebrate the hard work and success of our HDR students in such challenging times. Well done, guys!
