Early Career Researcher Stories

Within the SPRITE+ network, our Early Career Researchers (ECRs) are tackling important and challenging issues. They are using innovative methods; making new discoveries; asking important questions. They are the next generation of leaders. They are the Rising Stars.

We publish a different Rising Star each month as an opportunity for ECRs to showcase their research. If you'd like to showcase your research story please read more about the process here.
