And now time for some shameless self-promotion…
Last year I won one of the Vice Chancellor’s Awards for Early Career Researcher as recognition of “outstanding contribution to the University”, along with seven of my colleagues.
I intend to use the cash prize to visit Dr Rob Gess, a palaeontologist from South Africa based at Rhodes University, Grahamstown. Together we will describe a new species of lungfish from the polar Famennian Waterloo Farm locality of South Africa. Needless to say, I’m very excited!
