Yesterday we had our annual retreat for the Environmental Futures Research Institute (EFRI) - it was a huge success!
Three of our team members gave excellent introductory presentations at the retreat 'featuring our research and profiling our experience and interests' - Drs. Konstans Wells, Douglas Kerlin and Laura Grogan (see photos below).
It was an excellent opportunity to learn more about the underlying mechanics of the institute, find out about the research we each do, find common ground, and forge new collaborations within the Institute.
Highlights of the day were the intense discussions surrounding the PhD experience, and the excellent presentation by Drs. Catherine Pickering and William Bennett on "PhD by published and unpublished papers" (please see program below).
Many thanks to the excellent organisers of the event, and all the participants! :)
