Erasmus teaching and research exchange for Ian Oliver
Dr Ian Oliver, Lecturer in Environmental Science, just returned from a week-long Erasmus+ visit to University College Dublin (UCD), Ireland, for a teaching and research exchange. Earthworm sampling and identification sessions, with eminent UCD expert Prof Olaf Schmidt, were squeezed in around Terrestrial Ecotoxicology lectures delivered by Ian as part of a UCD MSc course. Ian also served as an external judge for a final year undergraduate poster competition sponsored by the Environmental Science Association of Ireland (ESAI). Future collaborative research opportunities for staff and postgraduate students, including use of stable isotope facilities at UCD, are now being explored.
