Friday, 4 September 2015

You won’t meet someone more passionate about early childhood education than Dr. Gerardine Neylon, the Faculty of Education’s Master of Teaching Early Childhood Coordinator.

Hailing from West Ireland, Gerardine moved to Perth with her husband to join us here at UWA in 2014. An expert in early childhood education and care, she’s seen a lot of changes in her 30 years working in the field.

After nearly 20 years studying bees, Boris Baer, the director of UWA’s Centre for Integrative Bee Research, knows a thing or two about our buzzing, black-and-yellow friend, Apis mellifera.

“I started my bee research when I was a PhD student,” said Boris. “That was with bumblebees in Europe. To be honest if you start to work with bees, after a couple of days you just fall in love. They’ll keep you busy for the rest of your life.”
