Today, in a significant honour, Robert Hickingbotham was awarded the CMSA Anne Penfold Street Student Prize. The prize was awarded to the best student talk at the 44th Australasian Combinatorics Conference. His talk was entitled “Product structure of graph classes with bounded treewidth” and arose out of work performed at a recent matrix workshop on Structural Graph Theory. It was judged on criteria including motivation, methods, organisation, substance, originality and rapport to be the best talk in a strong field.
Congratulations Robert on a great effort!
