Heriot-Watt University Committee

Meet our Heriot-Watt committee! Gemma and Sabina co-founded our Heriot-Watt node together. Gemma acts as our local Piscopia representative and Sabina takes up the role of outreach manager for her peers at Heriot-Watt University. In the academic year 2021-2022 PhD student Clara will join them as a local Piscopia representative.

Their first PhD information events for students at Heriot-Watt University took place in October 2020 and January 2021 (more info at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/piscopia-phd-event-tickets-134266692291), but keep an eye on this page for any upcoming events 🙂
