Congratulations to our 2021 4th year students on their excellent presentations!
A huge congratulations to all of our billiant 2021 4th year students, who overcame lockdowns, technical issues on Zoom, and a whole bunch of nerves, to completely ace their research project presentations last week!
Introducing our new lab member - Josh Rhee
Josh Rhee (not to be confused with youngest lab member: baby Josh) joined the lab earlier this month as a new Associate Research Fellow.
Upcoming Misinformation Lab Seminar Series - Ben Grodeck
We are extremely excited to announce that our July Seminar Series speaker will be Ben Grodeck who is a PhD student specializing in Experimental and Behavioural Economics. Ben’s talk will be entitled Demanding the Morally Demanding: Experimental Evidence from Charitable Giving.
Misinformation Lab Seminar Series - Christina Van Heer
In our May 2021 series talk, we were joined by the brilliant Christina Van Heer (aka CVH). Chris gave a talk on how her research has applied mathematical modelling to make sense of the way people update their predictions in changing environments.
Misinformation Lab Seminar Series - Morgana Lizzio-Wilson
The Misinformation Lab kicked off our 2021 seminar series in April with an outstanding talk from friend-of-the-lab Dr Morgana Lizzio-Wilson [@dr_morganalw]. Dr Lizzio-Wilson was previously a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Queensland with Dr Winnifred Louis and has now joined Flinders University as a post-doctoral fellow with Dr Emma Thomas.
Welcome to the lab - 2021 4th years
The Misinformation Lab had our first lab meeting of 2021 today and we were thrilled (as always) to meet our newest lab members. Our current students (and the projects they’ll be working on) are listed on the main page of our website.
Welcome back to the lab Emily Kothe
We’re thrilled that today is Emily Kothe’s first day back in the lab after having 2020 off for parental leave. It might be a while before we can have an in-person lab meeting but it’s still nice to have Emily back with us
Introducing our new PhD Student - Matt Mackay
The good news keeps on rolling, we’re thrilled that Matt Mackay offered a PhD candidature and scholarship at Deakin, starting at the end of March, 2021. Matt was a fourth year student in the lab in 2019.
Congratulations Maddie - Scholarship Edition
We just wanted to congratulate Maddie North on receiving a PhD scholarship! Maddie has been studying and working part-time during her PhD, and now with a scholarship she can spend more time on her PhD and less time marking papers
Congratulations to our 2020 4th years for making it through
Results are rolling in for some of our 4th year students, so we just want to congratulate everyone on their achievement of completing 4th year in a pandemic (whether they did it through the Misinformation Lab or anywhere else).
