At the 2016 Annual Conference for the Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research, Newcastle PhD Student Maryam Mehrnezhad won a best PhD research award. The format of the competition was an 'elevator pitch' in which students have 5 minutes to explain their research and research impact. Maryam spoke about her work on Mobile Sensors Security in this competition with students from University of Birmingham, Imperial college, University of Kent, Lancaster University, University of Oxford, Queen's University Belfast, RHUL, University of Surrey, and UCL. She was co-winner with the student from UCL. The conference itself brought together academic, industry and government representatives to discuss a number of themes, mainly based around exploitation of academic research and innovation. This is the first time that a Newcastle University student has won this prize.
