GSD student showcases research at ICUR 2019

ICUR 2019

Every year, students from the Global Sustainable Development department present their research at the International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR). This year, the conference took place on the 24th and 25th of September in The Oculus building on campus, showcasing the best undergraduate research from around the world via internationally video-linked sessions.

Supported by the Monash Warwick Alliance, nine institutions from across the globe, with students presenting from the UK, Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain, South Africa and the USA, shared their research in a transdisciplinary setting that encouraged presenters to rethink their own work in an international context.

This year, Todd Olive, one of our final year Economic Studies and GSD students took part in the two day conference, presenting his work to his own peers within the University, and to those from partner institutions too. Find out how he found his ICUR experience below, and be inspired to join the conversation next year.
