Good Luck Imma and Terhi and all the very best for the future!
After 14 years at the Ecosystems lab, Imma Oliveras has moved on and started a new job as Research Director in disturbance ecology at the Institute of Research for Development in Montpellier (France) (https://www.immaoliveras.org/) . We all wish Imma the very best with her new role!
Terhi Riutta was also in the Ecosystems lab for over a decade and left in November 2021 to take on a new role as TroPeaCC postdoc at the University of Exeter (https://blogs.exeter.ac.uk/tropeacc/team/). Many congratulations to Terhi and best of luck with this new chapter of her life.

Leverhulme Trust awards £10 million to new Oxford nature recovery centre
A new £10 million Oxford-based Leverhulme Centre for Nature Recovery has today [10 Jan] been announced - one of three UK centres established with a hotly-contested Leverhulme Trust 2021 award. On top of the 10-year Leverhulme funding, the centre, led by Oxford Professor Yadvinder Malhi, will receive £5 million in co-funding from the University of Oxford, which will support fundamental cross-disciplinary research.
The Oxford centre will undertake research that aims to help halt and reverse the ongoing loss and degradation of nature and its biodiversity – and so is very much in line with the Leverhulme Trust’s invitation to be bold with a bid that could transform understanding of an important topic.
