Dr Anna McGregor
After degrees at Wellesley College, St Andrews, Glasgow, and Duke, I am now a lecturer at the University of Glasgow. My postgraduate training was in marine mammal biology, and my research focuses on animal communication in aquatic and riparian habitats and the use of soundscapes to assess habitat quality. I have pedagogical interests in the applications of technology to enhancing the student learning experience through active learning and improving inclusivity through supporting student employability.
I am inspired by the constantly evolving field of new learning technologies and their potential to augment the traditional university experience while also reaching a wider and more diverse community of learners.
Is fieldwork a requirement for a career in marine science?
Please save the date for an introductory and perception gathering event run by a subset of the Challenger Society EDIA working group. The virtual event will focus on ‘Evaluating perceptions of job roles in marine research and raising awareness of digital twinning of the oceans to promote diversity and inclusivity in the marine sciences.’ The event will take place on the 27th of January 2021 13:30-15:30 on zoom.
The Decade Working Group (DWG): Update
In the UK marine community the United Nations Decade of Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030), hereafter ‘the Decade’, is gaining growing publicity. What is less well established is how UK marine researchers can participate in the Decade and how funding for research will emerge.
New NERC Ocean Observations Consultation
The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has asked the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) to lead a piece of work on prioritising the sustained ocean observations that are most important to the UK and the international effort.
