Relevant Research - November 2021

As another year winds up we are grateful that our research has been able to continue this year despite the pandemic. Online conferences have become a new normal although we miss valuable face-to-face interactions and collaborations with our international colleagues.

We are already planning for 2022, so if you would like to partner with our staff or students, whether on a new project or making good use of research we've already undertaken, we'd love to hear from you.
