Taumutu Rūnanga wish to congratulate Angela Wanhalla on being awarded one of ten Rutherford Discovery Fellowships.  These prestigious fellowships are awarded to New Zealand’s top early to mid-career researchers by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, to develop and foster future leaders in the New Zealand science sector.  Each Fellow receives a funding package of $800,000 over five years, to allow them to undertake important research that will be valuable for New Zealand’s future.

The fellowships are intended to attract and retain New Zealand’s most talented early-career researchers and encourage their career development in this country.  Angela received her fellowship for research entitled: “Marriage: The Politics of Private Life in New Zealand.”  Taumutu Rūnanga is very proud of Angela and we wish her much success for her future research.
Well done Angela.
