The School is proud to announce that Associate Professor Moninya Roughan has been selected to spend time in China as a 'High-end Foreign Expert'.

A/Prof Roughan was chosen by the Chinese Recruitment Program of High-end Foreign Experts of the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs for a fellowship which will allow her to spend six months in Shanghai over a three-year period.

She will be based at the 'State Key Lab' in Estuarine and Coastal Science at Eastern China Normal University (ECNU). State Key labs are recognised as the leading institute in a discipline. A/Prof Roughan will also visit Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou (top 10 in China), and possibly the Ocean University of China (OUC), Qingdao, during this time.

ECNU and OUC are partner Institutes in one of the flagship programs at SIMS that A/Prof Roughan is involved in: the World Harbour Project, led by Peter Steinberg.

A/Prof Roughan says that she is looking forward to representing UNSW in China during this time and "building collaborations between our groups".

Congratulations to Moninya!
