Dr Lidberg is one of 27 nominees from across Monash University.
“Every PhD project is like a three and a half year journey full of ups and downs and a lot of learning for all parties, that’s why it’s so enjoyable.”
It has been awarded since 1992.
“The MPA award is truly a decision of the postgraduate community. Supervisors are nominated by their postgraduate students and entries are judged by an independent subcommittee of research postgraduates drawn from the MPA Executive Committee,” the Monash Postgraduate Association wrote on its website.
