Research on the worldwide rise of cephalopod populations has taken the world by storm recently, and now the “Squidlings” research team, led by Dr Zoe Doubleday and Professor Bronwyn Gillanders has taken out the inaugural “Peer Prize for Women“!
The competition called for votes from the researchers’ “peers”. Only verified researchers were able to cast a vote. The competition received 40 entries from across Australia and a total of 1474 votes from researchers around the world. Find out more about the entrants here.
The cephalopod research received 183 votes, to take out the Earth, Environmental & Space Science Prize. The research team has won $10 000 to put towards more great research. Congrats to the Squidlings!
