Reading Time: 5 minutes After returning from a field trip to the Maldives with the MSc in Marine Systems and Policies, I look back to where I was one year ago (lawyer and litigator, spending endless hours in my desk reviewing evidence and preparing for court) and it feels almost like a dream. How did a lawyer end up […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes Welcome back everyone! We hope 2020 has begun well and that you’ve had a good start to the new semester.

Reading Time: 7 minutes The Christmas holidays are coming to an end, which has prompted quite a bit of self-reflection on my experiences this first semester.

Reflect on your past, events, and experiences […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes The end of November for students is usually spent with copious cups of coffee and hours on end in the library writing final  papers and preparing for tests.

Reading Time: 2 minutes Hydrogen (H2, molecular hydrogen) will likely play a crucial role in the future decarbonisation of the global energy mix. Hydrogen is unique in that when burned for energy, it produces predominantly water as a byproduct, whilst yielding energy. Hydrogen can be used therefore to produce low carbon energy for power, but also for heat, transport […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes SEC Campus Glasgow, looking south-east. The All Energy conference, and new Dcarbonise conference, were held again in Glasgow this year. They provided a great opportunity for the MSc GeoEnergy students to interact with industry leaders utilising the latest clean energy technologies, hear from government ministers on their plans to create appropriate frameworks and network with […]
