Dean’s Awards

In 2016, the School of Psychology’s RHD graduates were awarded more Dean’s Awards for Outstanding Higher Degree by Research Theses than graduates of any other enrolling unit at UQ!  The next highest was the Medicine super-Faculty, with 6 awards. 

Our EIGHT recipients are:

  • Dr Melany Christofidis Resolving contentious hospital observation chart design decisions using a behavioural experimental approach (Principal Advisor Mark Horswill)

  • Dr Maryam Ziaei The Emotional Ageing Brain: Cognitive Mechanisms and Neural Networks (Principal Advisor Julie Henry)

The Dean’s Award is conferred when the thesis examiners assess the thesis to be of an exceptional standard that makes an outstanding contribution to the field of research.

Our School is fortunate to attract such talented research students to undertake their training with us.  This also affirms our School’s fantastic culture of research and research training. 

Well done to all the students and supervisors!
