SASNET lunch seminar on Indian research culture vs. Swedish and Australian
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. More information about the project.
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.
