Honorary Professor role for Suzanne McGowan who will take up a new position in the Netherlands

Suzanne McGowan

Suzanne McGowan will leave the School of Geography in October to take up a new position as Head of Aquatic Ecology at the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO). Professor McGowan has worked in the School of Geography since 2004, including a three-year secondment to Malaysia in 2013-16 as Head of School.  She will continue her association with the school as an Honorary Professor and the position will come into effect on her departure.

As part of the association with Nottingham, Professor McGowan will continue to conduct research on the UKRI-GCRF Living Deltas Hub with Nottingham geographers Virginia Panizzo, Jorge Salgado, Lucy Roberts and Sarah Taylor. She will continue to supervise Amanda Burson, a Netherlands Research Council Rubicon Fellow who is investigating the effects of ice melt on phytoplankton ecology in West Greenland. She will also continue to supervise PhD students Hannah Kemp, Annegreet Veeken, Trang Ngo and Mingzhe Sun.

Suzanne says “I am very happy to continue my 17-year association with Nottingham. Part of my remit at NIOO is to collaborate with universities and I hope that this link will be the start of a productive relationship between the two institutions.”
