Dr Morgan Gilmour Awarded USA-To-Australia Scholarship

Dr Morgan Gilmour has been awarded a USA-To-Australia Scholarship by the American Australian Association’s education fund. The scholarship will provide funding for living expenses while Dr. Gilmour completes a Post-doctoral Fellowship at the University of Tasmania.

I’m so excited to be able to travel to Tasmania and spend time in-person with the rest of the group

This project is also supported by Zoos Victoria and Hobart City Council. During 2019-2020, Dr Gilmour will investigate the fate of ‘normal’ and so-called ‘biodegradable’ balloons under rigorously controlled, real-world environmental conditions.
