Katherine Fish, University of Sheffield, Prize Winner 2018: “It was an interesting and enjoyable day, with a supportive and encouraging environment. The conference gave me the opportunity to present my work to a different audience than previous events have and to engage with people in the public health sector which I have been keen to do given the relevance of my research into water quality.”
