We’re pleased to announce that Anna Klas has been awarded a 2018 Deakin Science and Society Network Establishment Grant. The grant will fund Anna’s attendance at the Australasian Society of Behavioural Medicine Annual Meeting in Christchurch in 2019.
Anna’s attendance at the conference will provide her the opportunity to create collaborative research ideas that combine health and environmental aspects of research into pro-environmental behaviour.
Reflections on UQ Open Science from our lab member Maddie North
Our fantastic group of 4th year students submitted their theses today. All of them put a tremendous amount of work into their projects and should be very proud of what they’ve achieved.
Honors student George Loram (Misinformation Lab) has reached the grand final of the “Let’s Torque” Science communication contest.
The final will be held Wednesday, September 12, 2018 from 6:00 - 8:30 PM at the Royal Society of Victoria (https://www.letstorque.org/calendar/2018/9/13/lets-torque-2018-grand-final).
This annual program provides Victorian undergraduate students training in public speaking and opportunities to interact with industry (https://www.letstorque.org/).
Maddie will be completing a Master of Applied Science on the topic “Investigating How Social Norms and Vegan Stereotypes Contribute Towards Motivation to Reduce Animal Product Consumption” under the supervision of Emily Kothe, Anna Klas, and Mathew Ling and starts her candidature today.
The award is for Anna’s PhD thesis entitled “Pro-environmentalism: Environmentalist Social Identity, Environmentalist Stereotypes, and Green Consumerism Engagement” which she submitted in October 2016 and graduated from in June 2017.
