Mrs Sarah Ward is Postgraduate research student within Geography and Environment at the University of Southampton.
I have always been interested in the natural world and wanted to do my own research. My undergraduate degree was at the University of Leicester in physics with planetary science, and during this time I got involved in a sustainability project in East Africa which really inspired me. The remote sensing masters course brought me to Southampton, and it was here that I found out about the Institute of Complex Systems Simulation (ICSS) and the new kind of PhD that they offered. This four year PhD program gave me the freedom to explore ideas in the first masters year, and design a PhD project that I am really passionate about. I am now studying the changes in shallow East African lakes and the affect upon lesser flamingo population abundance. Because of the nature of my PhD, I am now based in the School of Geography where I am supervised by Pete Langdon. I am still linked with the ICSS where I am supervised by Seth Bullock for the modeling aspect of my project.
