Heather Needham recently received a King’s Experience Award for her research with Dr. Michael Chadwick on environmental monitoring and water quality in the Okavango Delta, Botswana.
The Okavango is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is a significant source of biodiversity, due to seasonal flows across its alluvial fan.
As part of this research, she participated in a course that King’s Geography co-leads with Arizona State University and UNSW Sydney through the PLuS Alliance Global River Basin Connections research group in the summer of 2019, hosted at a field site with Elephants Without Borders. The course was recently awarded the Innovative Experience Award by Arizona State University this year.
