The past year has been extraordinary, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. Plans have had to shift and evolve as government guidelines and our understanding of the virus have changed. It has been difficult to gain any sense of stability in this time, and collaborative and community work like ours has been dramatically affected.
Many face-to-face data collection plans pivoted smoothly to online, while in other cases a thoughtful decision was made to temporarily pause research where the risks or constraints were too great. We are pleased to say that in the past year there has been no discernible drop in productivity, with outgoing papers and talks and incoming prizes and funding seemingly undiminished. Five PhD students passed their vivas and the partnership with the Salvesen Mindroom Centre continues to go from strength to strength.
Our greatest achievement of the past year, however, has been found in our capacity to nurture and protect each other as a team, something we can all be proud of.
