Doctoral Researcher Award

I would like to share the good news with you!

I was selected as a finalist in the ABTA Doctoral Researcher Award and after giving my presentation about Game Transfer Phenomena, I was awarded 1st place 🙂
I’m very happy because in this transitional period of my life this award really gives me the strength I need to start searching for my post-doc so I can continue researching about GTP.
