Highlights from the Graduate School Poster Competition 2017
The Graduate School’s 12th Annual Poster Competition for research students was held on Weds 17th May in Rockingham Library, Park Campus. The event offered UoN research students the opportunity to present their research in the form of a poster, practice their presentation skills to a non-specialist audience and a chance to win a prize of £100 or £75. 17 research students presented their work and eight judges, a mix of University staff, academic and support staff, plus an external judge from the University of Warwick, chose one first and two second prizes.
Jacquie Ridge, from Adult Nursing, in the Faculty of Health and Society, won with her poster “Identikit: make me a Nurse“. Jacquie’s research has provided insight into how student nurses create their professional identity. Second prizes of £75 were awarded to Anthony Stepniak from English, the Faculty of Education and Humanities and Emmanuel Ofori-Attah from Computing in the Faculty of Arts, Science and Technology. Anthony’s poster illustrated his research on the ‘wicked queen’ in contemporary narratives and Emmanuel’s research looked at chip design and power loss in handheld devices.
