Kate Gwilliam, who studies in the Department of Psychology and Human Development at the IOE, won the £400 prize for her poster on ‘Early childhood sleep patterns in Williams Syndrome and typical development, a longitudinal approach’.

IOE student Chris Dyke (Department of Social Science) was a runner up in the ‘Arts and Humanities, Institute of Education, Laws, Social and Historical Sciences’ category. Chris’s poster was entitled ‘No Crystal Balls: how do decision-makers evaluate the risk posed by a domestic abuser’.

The success follows on from previous success in the 2018 Doctoral poster competition when IOE Doctoral students claimed first place and all of the runners up places. 

The research poster competition offers graduate students an opportunity to meet, advertise and discuss the innovative research they are undertaking, providing them with an opportunity to raise the profile of their research.

Dr Richard Freeman, Interim Head of the Centre for Doctoral Education, said: “I’m delighted that once again our research students have done so well in presenting their doctoral research to the whole UCL community and offer my congratulations to Kate and Chris.”
