Last week PhD candidate Gundula Winter successfully defended her thesis into the physical wave transformation and water flow across fringing reefs, and in a first for WA, she did this through an oral exam.

“There’s so much value for students. Gundula met with her examiners for two hours; this is a great opportunity for her to talk in depth with experts about the research she’s just completed.
