Hello everyone! Things have been very quiet here at CRISP towers for the last few months. Many CRISP members have had all their time taken up with online teaching activities due to the pandemic. Nonetheless a few of us have still been able to beaver away quietly on our research too. In the next few weeks we're going to be updating you all with news of our research activities, publications and projects that have happened this year and are continuing into the next one. Hurray!
