Lakes380 team member Georgia Thomson-Laing received a PhD scholarship with the Victoria University of Wellington to investigate historical changes in the presence and abundance of culturally and ecologically significant species (tuna and other native fish) in New Zealand’s lakes and see how they responded to natural and human induced changes. Georgia will be supervised by Jamie Howarth (VUW) and Susie Wood (Cawthron).
She was also awarded one of the University of Otago’s Young Alumni Awards. The awards recognized 20 alumni in their twenties, who are making an impact in their professions and communities!
Well deserved, congrats Georgia!
