Professor Rachel Wood has been awarded with the '2018 Enhance Award' from The Association for Women Geoscientists (AWG).
Rachel receives this award in recognition of her work to enhance her research field as well as the future careers of female scientists from diverse backgrounds.
The School will lead a new £20 million UKRI GCRF Multi-hazard Urban Disaster Risk Transitions Hub aimed at reducing disaster risk for the poor in tomorrow’s cities. The Hub will coordinate research and policy teams in Kathmandu, Istanbul, Nairobi and Quito, supported by UK and international scientists.
Researchers from Edinburgh’s School of GeoSciences will be members of the UKRI GCRF’s new ‘One Ocean Hub’. This ambitious new Hub brings together partners from the UK, South Africa, Namibia, Ghana, Fiji and Solomon Islands to tackle the crisis facing our oceans.
