Europe supports future research leaders

Dr Ilias Simeonakis from the Faculty of Science and Engineering is amongst 203 researchers who have been awarded Marie Curie Career Integration Grants.  Ilias will use the funding to carry out crucial fieldwork in South Africa to support his research, which investigates monitoring of land degradation and desertification. He will work closely with Dr Steve Hoon and Dr Peter Caccetta’s team (CSIRO, Australia) to develop new approaches based on remote sensing technologies and geocomputation techniques.
