The International Consortium of Universities for the Study of Biodiversity and the Environment (iCUBE) conducted a week long expedition to Bukit Pagon, Brunei’s highest mountain at 1850m located in the southern part of the Temburong District. 

Kate Baker a current M.Sc Aquatic Resource Management student represented King’s College London.  She was joined by academics and students from all over the world. Participants were helicoptered out to Bukin Pagon on 2 July and spent nearly a week gathering baseline data on the flora, fauna, geology, climate and hydrology of the mountain forest. The trip was very successful.  The programme encourages scientists from different nationalities, ages and experience to work closely, in a collaborative setting.

Kate begins her NERC-funded PhD studies in the Department of Geography at King's this October. Her PhD investigates eco-hydromorphic mechanisms and interactions in tropical rivers. This is a very exciting project and is a natural progression from her undergraduate dissertation in which she investigated macroinvertebrate assemblages and biotopes in an English river.
