PhD student Yasmine Baghdadi participated in a poster exhibition, presenting to parliamentarians and judges at the Houses of Parliament.

STEM for Britain, hosted in Parliament since 1997 and organised by the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee, is designed to promote greater awareness among parliamentarians of the impact and potential of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). 

Yasmine's poster - co-authored with Filipp Temerov, Matyas Daboczi, Junyi Cui and Salvador Eslava - focused on research about artificial leaves with semiconductors for CO2 conversion to clean fuel using sunlight.

Yasmine was awarded the bronze award for the insights provided by her research, and stated: "

Our success underscores the crucial role of researchers in advancing sustainable solutions and emphasises the importance of active engagement and outreach to drive global progress. Yasmine Baghdadi PhD student

Being given the platform to share my research to a wider audience, including policy makers, motivated me to translate scientific knowledge to actionable insights, driving awareness and fostering dialogue that are crucial to drive the technology forward."

Chaired by Stephen Metcalfe MP, STEM for Britain aims to give members of the Houses of Parliament an insight into the outstanding research work being undertaken in UK universities by early-career researchers.

The next STEM for Britain competition will take place in early 2025 with applications likely to open from September 2024. You can find out more about the event on the STEM for Britain website.
