Aerosol Science Research Webinars

CDT research webinars are presented by leading academic and industrial researchers, helping practioners stay up to date with the latest developments in their fields. The CDT webinar programme is open to our students, academic team and Tier 2 partners. Partners can access the full programme of webinars, either joining live or watching recordings via the e-Portal.

Our first webinar is available to all:

Dr David Topping (University of Manchester): Machine Learning in Aerosol Science

Recorded Friday 25th October 2019
