Research degrees awarded to supervised students

I have supervised multiple BSc and MSc students as first supervisor and Ph.D. students in a team. Eight students presented on international conferences, one student one the Cooper Vision Summer Summit and one student was awarded with a student travel grant. In total, I had four students writing both, their BSc and MSc thesis with me as first supervisor.
