REAL PRIORITY, IMPORTANCE AND SUPPORT IS GIVEN TO RESEARCH.

DR KAT WHITEHOUSE-TEDD

Senior Lecturer

I SEE POSSIBILITIES TO PROTECT THE FUTURE OF RURAL AFRICAN FARMERS THROUGH THE STUDY OF CARNIVORES.

MY NAME IS KATHERINE, BUT EVERYONE CALLS ME KAT BECAUSE OF MY LOVE FOR BIG CATS.

Just as my name has evolved, so has my intrigue in the complex relationships between these carnivores, livestock, the dogs that guard them, and the people that work in challenging African landscapes. Because, if we truly want to create a sustainable environment, we need to better accommodate the needs of every aspect of the system.

Seeing the bigger picture – developing a wider understanding of the interconnected nature of everything – creates, I believe, better long-term solutions. At NTU they also see the bigger picture – how the relationship between research, teaching, students and the particular passions of academics all come together in realising the goals of the university. 

I’ve seen a real shift in the priority, importance and level of support given for research of the highest quality – research that not only informs teaching, but has a global impact in terms of both scientific contributions and world-changing outcomes. 

Tell us of a future you'd like to create and we'll give you the resources to make things happen.

NTU HAS GIVEN ME THE POSSIBILITY TO EVOLVE MY CAREER, EXPAND MY UNDERSTANDING AND IMPROVE MY RESEARCH WITH THE CONSTANT SUPPORT OF MY TEAM AND SENIOR MANAGEMENT.

People are really encouraging and collaborative, and I've been able to follow my passion and expand my knowledge by undertaking further studies in psychological research methods within the School of Social Sciences at NTU.

NTU HAS BROADENED MY HORIZONS IN SO MANY WAYS.

If I’d stayed in my previous role I wouldn’t have had the opportunities I have here. My enthusiasm for my subject has grown, and I’ve learnt that not everything I love has to have spots.
