Earlier this year Dr. Grace Shephard, a Postdoc at CEED, Dep. of Geosciences was selected as 1 out of 3 European representatives to attend the MGLS Symposium, Washington DC, USA. This bienniel event brings together early career researchers to build skillsets such as science policy, communication, and collaboration. Shephard who has her main interest in plate tectonic reconstructions/ocean floor and modelling mantle structure, highly recommends the Symposium in this summary.
