Worcester PHD student awarded for research pitch about bumblebees

A PHD STUDENT from the University of Worcester has been given an award by an international organisation for her research pitch.

Andrea Tapia Arenas entered the contest from the Compostela Group of Universities, helping students with the dissemination of their research – and awarded third place, which came with €300 award.

Andrea’s research was on how to better monitor habitats for bumblebees using remote sensing data – she created a video to pitch her research of the contest.

“I hoped I would do well in the competition, because the video pitch you make for it is out there so other researchers that are doing similar work, or who are interested in that area of study can see what you’re doing and contact you, it’s like networking.”

She added that people who work in the area of research only have so many money and so many resources.
