Every September Cambridge opens its doors to welcome a new cohort of AgriFoRwArdS CDT students. This time Agriforwards CDT Cambridge were joined by Cohort 4 students, Yi Zhang and Jack Bradley, who have just finished their MSc RAS and moved to do their research in Cambridge.
Yi will be running her research under supervision of Dr Fulvio Forni and Jack will continue his work under supervision of Dr Somenath Bakshi who joined the CDT last year.
Yi Zhang’s research title: Controller-based Reinforcement Learning in Robotics Manipulation
Jack Bradley’s research title: Bioreactor arrays for analysis and control of food production using genetically modified microbes.
The AgriFoRwArdS CDT welcome event was held on Fri, 29 September, and was attended by current CDT students and supervisors. The Cambridge Academic team updated students on the CDT new academic year, gave information on the CDT events and reminded students about their rights and responsibilities.
The welcome event finished with a conversation with CDT Deputy Director, Fumiya Iida, about what new students can expect from their studies in Cambridge.
