December 6, 2012 - 12:30-13:30
Assistant Professor Emily Baird from Lund Vision Group at the Dept. of Biology, Lund University holds a SASNET lunch lecture on ”Swedish-Australian perspectives on research collaboration with India”.
Venue: Lunds konsthall, Mårtenstorget 3. See conference poster. http://www.sasnet.lu.se/sites/default/files/baird.pdf
This is the fourth and final SASNET Brown Bag seminar for the fall semester 2012, as usual held in collaboration with Arbetarnas Bildningsförbund (ABF) Lund, and Lunds konsthall.
Dr. Baird is involved in an exciting research project on the aerobatic maneuvers of insects, a project carried out in collaboration with the the National Centre for Biological Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental research in Bangalore.

The frequent interactions, both in Lund and in Bangalore, not only gave interesting scientific results, but also gave an interesting insight into how culture affects approaches to scientific research. Given Dr. Baird’s experience of being a researcher in both Australia and Sweden, this insight has helped her to have a broad understanding of research culture in different environments and to identify both advantages and shortcomings of different approaches.
SASNET organises Brown Bag lunch seminars in collaboration with ABF, Sweden’s largest adult liberal education association, and the municipal art gallery of Lund (Lunds konsthall). As usual, lectures are given by eminent Lund University researchers working on South Asia related projects, and are held once a month on Thursdays.
