Over the last 13 months ICARUS has gone from strength to strength from a female perspective.
4 women research scientists have joined the ICARUS team;

Dr. Michelle Curran, Technical Officer in Palaeoceanography and Climate Dynamics
Dr. Carla Mateus, Assistant Professor in Climate Science
Dr. Kirsty Morris, Post-doctoral Researcher in Marine Biology
Dr. Carla Sa Ferreira, Assistant Professor in Biogeography
And Dr Niamh Cahill, affiliated to ICARUS and part of the Hamilton Institute, was promoted to Associate Professor.
New funding has been generated for ICARUS; Dr. Helen Shaw is Co-PI on a €1.2m project looking at the extent and condition of Ireland’s ancient woodlands. Dr. Niamh Cahill is Co-PI on the €1.4m Go Green Next Horizon Europe project and Dr. Samantha Hallam is Co-PI on the €150k TOPIM project, developing a tropical cyclone ocean coupled potential intensity model for the Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
In addition, Catherine O’Beirne and Shirley Howe, current PhD researchers, are currently submitting their thesis. Catherine is now preparing papers for publication and Shirley has started as a lecturer in Geography.
And finally, a most wonderful highlight, Professor Jennie Stephens will be joining ICARUS later this year as Professor of Climate Science and Climate Justice under the Senior Academic Leadership Initiative.
