Congratulations to Krithika Ravi who participated in the Gunnar Sundblad session for young researchers on Ekmandagarna 2019 held in Stockholm. She won the competition and was awarded as the “bästa doktorandpresentation vid Ekmandagarna 2019”. The prize is a travel scholarship of SEK 50 000! The competition was organized in a pecha-kucha format, where the participants have to present their research using 20 slides in 20 seconds each slide. Krithika had 10 other competitors from LTH, KTH, Chalmers, Umeå, Karlstad, Linköping, Mittuniversitetet and Stockholm University.
