Research meetings are held every third Thursday at 10:00. The format is that two people present their latest work for discussion. All are welcome.
Meetings take place in the Stats Tea Room on Level 5. To get to the Tea Room enter the PD Hahn on Level 4, from the car park on the South side of the building. Go up to the fifth floor and ask at the Stats reception to be let through to the Tea Room.
The next meeting is on 15 March when Emmanuel Kabuga and Jessleena Suri will be presenting.
Emmanuel, a new MSc student at SEEC, will speak to us about his plans for his thesis, which will look at the individual identification of Western Cape toads.
Jessleena will be giving a talk on using atlassing data for understanding impacts of urban landscape structure on bird communities in South African cities, based on her first foray into the occupancy modelling that will form the bulk of her PhD.
Every year SEEC holds a one-day symposium at which all SEEC Masters and PhD students give a presentation on their work. This is an excellent opportunity for the group to "catch up" with each other's research and is also open to anyone interested in the work being done at SEEC. This year our symposium will be on Monday 28 May.
