CS Student Triumphs at BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium

Wanyue with her poster

Congratulations to our undergraduate student Wanyue Zhang for winning a best poster prize at the 2018 BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium, for a second year running.

Wanyue’s poster, entitled “Refocusing on the future: deep learning and light field imaging”, demonstrated how convolutional neural networks can be used to mitigate the spatial and angular domain trade-off for light field imaging. She was commended by prize sponsors JP Morgan for her passion, expertise in the area and the fluency of her delivery.

The BCSWomen Lovelace Colloquium is an annual national conference for women studying Computing and related subjects. This year's event took place on 28 March, and was hosted by the University of Sheffield. Over 100 finalists from universities across the UK presented their work. 

Wanyue said: “The colloquium was a wonderful platform for me to interact with other women in computer science. We exchanged knowledge and shared the challenges we face being a minority in this field. Moreover, the talks and panel sessions from female software developers and academics were truly inspiring.” 


Please join us in congratulating Wanyue on her success!
