About Chaplain’s Conversations:

This event is with Professor Sir Ian Boyd, School of Biology. In conversation with the Chaplain, Donald MacEwan, we will explore Professor Boyd’s career, what inspires him in his research and his thoughts about the future of education.

Professor Sir Ian Boyd is Chief Scientific Adviser to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), advising on climate, the future of the seas and a range of scientific matters. He remains a Professor in the University’s School of Biology, having established the Scottish Oceans Institute (SOI) as a multidisciplinary research centre at St Andrews, and is a former Director of the NERC Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU). His research specialty is the behavioural dynamics of marine predators, the management of marine ecosystems, and ecological economics. His knighthood was announced in the Queen’s Birthday Honours this year.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Chaplain’s Conversations: are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
