PERC extends a warm welcome to Xiaoya Lei, an Association of Commonwealth Universities Blue Charter (Marine Plastic Pollution) fellow from Keele University, UK. During the fellowship, Xiaoya will be working with the PERC team to develop a Keele University website, ‘Hacking Plastic’, and an online conference which focusses on the role of the arts in plastic pollution literacy. Xiaoya will be based in Palmerston North until 29th March 2019. In mid-March, she will present a seminar to the wider Massey community. More details to come.
