And The Winner Is…!

The academic year is starting to wrap-up and award season has begun! Lecturers and Researchers are being recognised for their efforts over the past year and we are pleased to report that we’ve had news about four of our students’ success in the last week alone!

Hope Christie

Bath Psychology researcher and Student Rep, Hope Christie has won the prestigious Ede and Ravenscroft Best Research Student Prize! Hope and the other finalists had to present their research at an open event. The win will be reported to the University of Bath Senate! Hope was also part of a research team that submitted an Image of Research to the University of Bath’s Engage Festival. You can see the image here!

Tamsyn Hawken

Tamsyn Hawken– also a Bath Psychologist- has won a Psychology Postgraduate Affairs Group ‘Rising Researcher’ Award. In order to be considered, Tamsyn had to demonstrate the unique approach she is taking towards her research; show the long-term impact of her research and highlight a personal characteristic that contributed towards her success. Tamsyn- who uses biomarkers of stress, chose her resilience. Tamsyn keeps a blog “Promoting a balanced and holistic approach to postgraduate study, and beyond”. Finally, Tamsyn’s supervisor- Professor Julie Turner-Cobb- wrote a fantastic supporting statement. Tamsyn has been invited to talk about her research at the PsyPAG conference in July, where she will talk more in depth about how her resilience has supported her research. Tamsyn also entered an image to the Images of Research competition with her own team, which you can view here.

You can read about Hope and Tamsyn’s prizes on our SWDTP Student Showcase page!
