While perusing my emails recently, I had a delightful surprise: an email notifying me that I have been awarded the 2015 Australian Society for Limnology Early Career Excellence Award.
The award is given to limnologists based on the contributions they have made in the first ten years of their professional life. I am thrilled, humbled and very honoured to receive such an acknowledgment from my freshwater colleagues.
As part of the award, I will give the Christy Fellows Lecture at the joint ASL and New Zealand Freshwater Sciences Society conference in New Zealand next year. Very exciting!
