Working on a climate change project, or something with implications for climate change?
AUT has a new Climate Change Researchers’ Group especially for PG students involved in tackling the urgent problem of our warming climate.
The purpose of the climate change researchers’ group is to promote a supportive environment for climate change postgraduate students to meet on a regular basis (most likely monthly to begin with). During meetings you will have the opportunity to talk about your research and share how your research journey is going. Both Masters and PhD students are welcome to join.
Group leader Nina Ives is midway through her PhD, and was motivated to start the group to build her own network of climate change research colleagues. Nina says: “I get the feeling that postgraduate students who are doing research on climate change at AUT, and in Aotearoa New Zealand more broadly, will be spread across different faculties and disciplines – from the physical and natural sciences to the social sciences and the arts. This can make it challenging to meet other students who are also doing climate change-related research.” She has started this group to reach across faculties and disciplines to find like-minded scholars who share a common mission.
If you’d like to join the group, or perhaps just come along for lunch to meet the crew and check it out, contact Nina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
