On 26 March Birkbeck held the 2nd Public Engagement Awards which aims to recognize and celebrate success in working to make their research accessible to the public and within communities.
PhD/ Early Career winner: Jessica Massonnié
Congratulations to Birkbeck doctoral researcher Jessica Massonnié (Department of Psychological Sciences) who was the winner of the PhD/ Early Career prize for research exploring children’s perception of classroom noise ‘Noise Annoyance in Schools: is it a Fatality?‘
Jessica collaborated with artists and elementary school teachers and designed child-friendly interventions with the potential to improve children’s well-being while also aiding data gathering on noise in the classroom.
Congratulations also to two further PhD students who were highly commended for their work in this category:
- Ajitesh Ghose (Centre for Cognition, Computation and Modelling), Unearthing Gender Stereotypes in Visual Artificial Intelligence Models
- Katie Stone (Department of English and Humanities), Utopian Acts
