Juliet Hermes, manager of SAEON's Egagasini Node

Juliet Hermes appointed Honorary Associate Professor

The University of Cape Town (UCT) has appointed Juliet Hermes, manager of SAEON’s Egagasini Node, as an Honorary Associate Professor in recognition of her commitment and ongoing support to the oceanography department.

“This honorary appointment not only allows Juliet to carry the title of Professor, but also allows her to build on her collaboration within UCT, hold office space within the department (and perhaps of greatest envy to many, receive academic parking!),” says Isabelle Ansorge, head of the oceanography department. “The dedication and support shown by Juliet and her team at SAEON over the past decade is truly exceptional and I strongly believe that her title is justly deserved!”

Juliet also celebrated 10 years at SAEON last year.
