December 2018

Professor of Geography, Environment and Society at Trinity, Anna Davies, has won the highly prestigious Irish Research Council (IRC) Researcher of the Year award.

Professor Davies is Principal Investigator within the Environmental Governance Research Group and has been honoured for her research in environmental governance and sustainability.

Now in their second year, the Researcher of the Year awards recognise and commend the very best of the IRC’s current awardees or alumni working in academia, industry, civic society or the public sector.

Professor Davies said:

"I was delighted and honoured to receive the Irish Researcher of the Year award. The Irish Research Council has supported my research in so many ways, from small seed funding to large grants. They have also been absolutely pivotal in supporting the internationalisation of my research profile, supporting me to secure a prestigious grant from the European Research Council. I am eternally gratefully for this."
