Professor Angela Hatton said, “These are interesting and exciting times for the NOC; addressing globally significant challenges, driving forward technology development and conducting science that has a positive impact on society and the economy. I’m delighted to take up the challenge of helping the NOC achieve this and to strengthen partnerships with the marine science community in the UK and around the world.”
