In 2012 I co-supervised then-undergradute student Amy Dobos in a research project examining the effectiveness of digitally-produced pictures for communicating about Alzheimer’s disease research (see here and here). Amy created the pictures using her skills as a photographer and science communicator, and then surveyed people interested in Alzheimer’s disease about their interpretations of them.
A paper writing up that research has now been accepted for publication in one of the best science communication journals, Public Understanding of Science.
Amy is the lead author of the paper, followed by me and project advisor, Rod Lamberts.
This is the third student-authored journal paper to have emerged from a student-run research project conducted through one of my undergraduate courses.
My heartfelt congratulations to Amy.
Update May 27 – now prepublished online here.
