Dr Louise Slater, Tutorial Fellow and Associate Professor in Geography, was yesterday honoured by the Royal Geographical Society.
The annual Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) medals and awards recognise people or organisations for their outstanding contributions to the field. Dr Slater received the Gill Memorial Award for her outstanding early career research in physical geography, recognising her use of pioneering techniques to analyse hydrological data. Along with her research group, Louise’s work seeks to understand the impacts of climate change on river systems and associated water-related extremes likes floods, droughts and heat waves. At the University level, she chairs the Oxford Water Network.
I feel incredibly honoured to receive the Gill Memorial Award. I am grateful to the Royal Geographical Society and IBG, to my nominators, former advisors, colleagues, students, friends and family.
