As a way of marking our halfway point in the grant, I interviewed Professor Renee Sieber and collected some reflections regarding progress in the first half of Geothink. As this is also the start of a new academic year, we welcome a number of new students and say farewell to a few who have graduated.
This newsletter will also be seeing some minor changes. As we move into the second half of the grant, the Geothink Newsletter will now be focusing much more heavily on presented research from our researchers and students. [View Post]
