Sarah Jeal – UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction

We are delighted to invite all UCL Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction alumni, staff and students to join our online Alumni Student Mixer.

We are very proud of our former students and we look forward to introducing you to our current students at the mixer, where you will have the opportunity to meet, socialise, and make new connections with the IRDR global community.

Our event will open with an introduction to the new IRDR Space Health Risks Research Group by coordinators Myles Harris (current PhD student) and professor Ilan Kelman. Then, you will have the chance to move between breakout rooms and catch up with friends and colleagues before we come back together at the end of the evening.

About the IRDR Space Health Risks Research Group

IRDR’s new research group is a multidisciplinary community of researchers and practitioners who are investigating how the mitigation of risks to health in space can contribute to promoting good health and well-being in remote environments on Earth. The Space Health Risks Research Group brings together IRDR’s current research project related to these topics, one of which has recently won a UCL Grand Challenges Doctoral Student small grant. Prof Ilan Kelman and PhD student Myles Harris are coordinating the research group, and will be presenting an overview of the current research projects.

Access to this event is by invitation only. Staff and current students will have received a calendar invitation, while IRDR Alumni will receive an invitation through the UCL Alumni team by the end of February.
