My first international conference: Presenting at The British Society for Geomorphology

Post contributed by Niamh Cullen

Last September I attended the British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) Annual Meeting in Plymouth University. It was my first opportunity to present my PhD research at an international conference and also a great opportunity to catch up with people I met at the BSG Windsor Workshop in my first year as a PhD student (has it been 3 years already?).
