Mathematical modelling of plankton dynamics is the field of interest for Mr. Roy, a junior research fellow at the Indian Statistical Institute. He travelled to the University of Manchester to develop new mathematical techniques to assess marine primary production based on field data and remote sensing. His 3 months of training was supervised by Prof. David Broomhead of the School of Mathematics.
|First Institute of Oceanography, China||Dalhousie University, Canada|
Mr. Wei Jianwei’s research at First Institute of Oceanography focuses on bio-optical oceanography and biogeochemistry. His fellowship took him to the Oceanography Department of Dalhousie University in Canada, where for 3 months he underwent instruction in fixed point time series observations and emerging technologies for ocean instrumentation. Dr. Marlon Lewis was the host supervisor.
