Every year the Otago University Student Association, or OUSA for short, holds the Supervisor of the Year Awards for each Division. Students that wish to recognise their supervisors’ efforts in supporting their research can put forward their nomination earlier in the year.

Gert-Jan was overseas at the time of the announcement and for the prize giving award, but Neil was happy to step in and receive the award on his behalf.
