In what proved to be an exceptionally strong field of nominees, Dr Robert Odolinski has won a University of Otago Early Career Award for Distinction in Research.
Robert teaches Geodesy and least-squares adjustment theory, and conducts research in Regional/Global Navigation Satellite Systems (RNSSs/GNSSs) in the School of Surveying.
The award consists of a grant of $5,000 to be used by the end of March 2019 to assist Robert’s research in any way he chooses. The award also means that Robert has become a member of the O-Zone Group. This group has been established to maintain focus on early career researchers, with award winners remaining members of the group for a five-year term. O-zone conveners sit on the University of Otago Research Committee to represent early career staff. The group exemplifies the University of Otago’s national and international leadership, including world-class researchers across the spectrum of disciplines – science, medical science, social science, commerce, business, humanities and the arts.
The School is very proud of Robert’s achievements and congratulates him on winning this prestigious award.
