Lorna Smith wins the Jonathan Sime Award 2018
17 September 2018
Recent graduate, Lorna Smith, was awarded the Jonathan Sime Award for 2018.
The School of Psychological Science are incredibly pleased to announce that this year one of the students that we nominated Lorna Smith, Supervised by Professor Steve Lewandowsky, has won the award! In particular, the panel have commented that Lorna's work was "very interesting and provided some novel insight into the role of social media on climate change attitudes and the importance of appropriate training. The work was beautifully written, presented in a very professional, concise and polished manner. The research was evidently thoroughly conducted and is a perfect example of multidisciplinary empirical work in the field of people-environment studies".
The nominee for this prize is the student with the Best Undergraduate Dissertation on the topic of Environmental Psychology. Every year, we nominate at least one of our finalist undergraduate students for this prestigious award, and historically our students have done incredibly well with their extended abstracts being either shortlisted or receiving a commendation from the award panel.
