During January, Prof Cherith Moses held a series of meetings in Mahidol University, Chulalongkorn University and Thammasat University in Bangkok, Thailand. She met with colleagues to progress the work for two new research projects: (i) the Newton Fund, NERC-ESRC-TRF, research project ‘Thai coast: Coastal Vulnerability, Resilience and Adaptation in Thailand’ that started in October 2018 and (ii) the complimentary EHU Global Challenges Research Fund project ‘Climate Change, Coastal Erosion and Risks of Flooding to Low-Lying Coastlines Subject to Tropical Storms, Thailand’ that started in January 2019.
GTA/PhD candidate Emma Readitt attended the NERC funded ‘Quaternary Palaeoecology short course’ last week in the Natural History Museum, London. Emma successfully obtained her place on the training course in December 2018 through a competitive application process. The course fully funded 15 students to travel to London, provided accommodation and to be trained by leading scholars in the palaeo field. Of the 15 students, 13 were NERC funded and given priority on the course. Emma obtained one of the two non-NERC funded slots which was notably competitive.
