Research Success for Te Tumu Staff

The New Zealand Centre of Research Excellence, Ngā Pae o Te Māramatanga, has been refunded for 2016-2020 .  Although Ngā Pae is hosted through University of Auckland, it has now been organised in conjunction with other institutions.  One of the new co-directors is Associate Professor Jacinta Ruru from Law Faculty at the University of Otago.  At Te Tumu: School of Māori, Pacific and Indigneous Studies we are proud that four of our staff members are among the confirmed Principle Investigators, Research: Professor Paul Tapsell, Associate Professor Poia Rewi, Associate Professor Merata Kawharu, and Dr Lyn Carter.

Dr Lyn Carter has also been asked to develop a research project for the National Science Challenge, Bio-Heritage Theme.  The project is entitled ‘Implementing Vision Matauranga across Tippping Points research programmes’.  Dr Carter will work with a PhD student and Iwi/hapu to develop a mātauranga Māori model for ecosystem sustainability.
