Appreciative Thanks to our Researcher in Residence

13/07/2020

As the school year draws to a close, we would like to extend our  thanks and appreciation to Dr Lindsey Cameron, our researcher in residence, for another year supporting us. We have long standing links with Dr Cameron, who is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Kent Univeristy, and is an expert in the development of prejudice and stereotyping in children. She has twenty years of experience in the design and evaluation of prejudice-reduction interventions for use in schools, with particular expertise in inter-group contact theory. She has attracted funding for her research from the Big Lottery, Oxfam, Economic and Social Research Council, DfID, NHS.

As Researcher in Residence, Dr Cameron helps embed evidence-based practice and robust research methodology in what we do, she also continues to develop the link between the University of Kent and the Linking Network, providing access to resources such as voluntary student researchers, hosting joint events on campus and accessing expert advice from University on external funding opportunities. We recommend anyone who hasn’t already, to take a look through the resources Lindsey has produced.
