CASA Students Win In All Nominated RGS Dissertation Prizes – Again!
27 January 2021
Congratulations to the following CASA students who have won once again in the three nominated categories for the Royal Geographical Society awards, after last year's similar success:
Cheyne Campbell - RGS Planning and Environment Research Group Competition Postgraduate Dissertation Prize. Supervisor: Andrew Maclachlan
Last year's winner was Greg Slater
Cheyne’s work explored how features of the built environment can be used to predict pedestrian crashes and demonstrated the influence of achievable alterations (e.g. changing the number of lanes) in improving pedestrian safety. https://github.com/cheynecampbell/charlotte-pedestrian-safety

'The review panel very much enjoyed reading this piece of research. It is highly innovative, rigorous and technically capable. It was a pleasure to read and very insightful.'
Hussein Mahfouz - GIScRG Postgraduate Prize (one of three). Supervisor: Elsa Arcaute
Last year's winner was Thomas Keel (joint)
Jamie Ser Nee Tan - RGS Population Geography Research Group Postgraduate Dissertation Prize. Supervisor: Jens Kandt
Last year's winner was Joshua Yee
Thanks and congratulations also go to all CASA staff for their continued efforts on the dissertation module. CASA students have won all RGS awards we have submitted them for over the last two years (the double hattrick), representative of the quality of teaching, research and supervision in the department.
