There have been a number of important developments. We have completed an entire hiring round, resulting in the appointment of three new lecturers; bringing the total number of staff appointments to eight. We have secured three major NERC grants and five papers have been published in Nature. Finally, having achieved a 95% overall satisfaction rating in last year’s National Student Survey, this year we achieved 100%! Lots to smile about!
