2007 Student news

October 2007 Daniel Watzenig visited the Math Department for several months in 2005, working on his PhD from the Technical University of Graz, Austria, under Colin Fox's supervision (as well as attending JCB's course, etc). The work he did in Auckland formed the brunt of his thesis that was presented and passed in 2006. In September 2007 Daniel was awarded the Measurement Award of 2007 (among students in Germany, Austria and Switzerland), based on his PhD thesis and a publication from the thesis.
