Pablo Garcia Diaz awarded student prize

pablo_webIA CRC PhD student at the Invasion Ecology Group of the University of Adelaide, Pablo Garcia Diaz (pictured), was on a winner when he took out the Student Prize for a talk recently at the Statistics in Ecology and Environmental Monitoring (SEEM) conference in Queenstown New Zealand.

Pablo presented a 5-minute ‘speed talk’ on his research about the preparedness of Australian border and post-border biosecurity in detecting new incursions of exotic amphibians into the country. The Student Prize for his talk was awarded jointly with Helen Nathan from the University of Auckland.

The conference was a great opportunity for Pablo to learn about new and emerging analytical methods, as well as for networking with other people with shared interests. Pablo’s attendance to the conference was supported by the IA CRC’s Chief Executive’s Prize for Student Achievement.
