Mike Kearney from the University of Melbourne introducing his NicheMapR package CBA Director Craig Moritz welcoming workshop participants
20 May 2022

With covid-related restrictions relaxing a little, the CBA was delighted to host its first in-person technical workshop in over a year.

Over 20 students and researchers participated in today's NicheMapR technical workshop at the ANU presented by Prof Michael Kearney, from the University of Melbourne.

Thank you to Mike for finally making it to ANU to present this very well-received workshop. The attendees commended Mike's fantastic, approachable teaching style and the capabilities and potential of the NicheMapR package. We've even had requests to have Mike back again for a longer follow-up workshop to unpack specifics of the package and possible collaboration on projects!

One of the major objectives of the CBA is to build capacity through training of postdoctoral and postgraduate researchers and we welcome input from Early Career Researchers regarding the types of training activities they want. So thank you and well done to PhD student Kris Wild (UCanberra) who proposed and assisted with the organisation of the NicheMapR workshop via the CBA's Training Support program.
