Professor Martin Wooster
Member of staff in the Geography Department, King's College London.
Martin is one of the seminar series' most frequent staff attendees and this will be his second talk in the seminar series. His previous talk involved a very frank insight into the highs, smoky lows and of course the perils of fire research with some fantastic photo and video footage. There is not remotely enough space here to do justice to Martin's research interests, nor his academic achievements but suffice it to say he's an expert/is researching it/knows of someone researching it if it's about fire and airborne/satellite monitoring.
Basically back in the 90's when u left university I did not want to become a management consultant - which was all the rage back then... So instead I spent six months travelling round Asia, getting dengue fever in India, having anti rabies jabs after being scratched by Indonesia monkeys, searching for woolly rhino in the Sumatran rainforest, and trekking in the Nepal Himalaya. After scanning my ancient slides I have not looked at for 20 plus years I can share a few memories with anyone interested.
