New Institute members, April 2019

Published: Tuesday, 30 April, 2019

We're delighted to welcome three new members to the Institute this week. Joanna Kacprzyk (Biology and Environmental Science) is working on projects looking at aerenchyma formation in plants, which is linked to increased the plant flooding survival as well as tolerance to other abiotic stresses such as drought, salinity, nutrient deficiency. Andrew Jackson (Law) has been contributing to the Institute for the past couple of years as part of our executive committee so it’s great to formally welcome him as a member – Andrew’s interests in law relate to biodiversity, climate change, and environmental democracy. Barry Molloy’s (Archaeology) primary areas of interest include conflict, ancient resource management, migration / mobility, inter-cultural interaction and the exploration of social stresses / rapid transformations. A very warm welcome to you all.
