Hazel in Sweden !

One of our PhD students, Hazel Govender, just left us for the University of Lund in Sweden. Her adventure started last March with her application for the EUROSA Scholarship – Erasmus Mundus Action 2. She was awarded at the end of April and it’s been a long process!

She will be based at the Centre for Environmental and Climate Research at Lund University.  Her supervisor is Dr Ullrika Sahlin, who specialises in “practical implementation of decision making under uncertainty”.  She will be attending PhD courses in “Risk and Decision making under uncertainty”.  The work schedule includes working on CEC current projects and application of her experience at CEC, to her project.

She arrived in Lund on Wednesday 12th October and went straight into a PhD course on Risk on Thursday and Friday.  In November, she will be attending the Society for Risk Assessment (SRA) Nordic Chapter Meeting in Gӧteborg, where she will do an oral presentation.  This will be a gathering of risk researchers and risk specialists with a multi-disciplinary focus.

Hazel will share her adventures and experiences as many time as possible on this website. We can’t wait to see pictures !
