Rachel Orritt’s presentation at the annual University of Lincoln Post Graduate Conference, hosted by The Graduate School, was awarded the prize for the Best Presentation.
Rachel presented on ‘Qualitative Research: For Life Scientists’, discussing the use of qualitative methods outside the fields that traditionally employ them. Rachel is studying for a PhD on the ‘Development of a Risk Assessment for Predicting Aggressive Behaviour in Dogs’ under the supervision of Profs Todd Hogue in Psychology and Daniel Mills in Life Sciences.
Following from her success, Rachel has been invited to present the talk again at a UoL Life Sciences seminar on the 30th April – a chance to catch it if you missed it first time around. In Rachel’s blogpost on the event you can also find a Qualitative Glossary and the slides for the talk.
Rachel’s next presentation will be on the ‘Similarities between the Representation of “Aggressive Dogs” and “Sex Offenders” in the British News Media’ at a global conference entitled ‘Making Sense Of: The Human Animal Bond’.
We are very pleased and proud of the success of our students!
