The British Science Association has awarded Spencer Hazel with a Media Fellowship working as part of The Times newspaper. The British Science Association Media Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for practising scientists, clinicians, and engineers to spend two to six weeks working at the heart of a media outlet such as The Guardian, BBC Breakfast or the Londonist.
Dr Spencer Hazel is Research Fellow at LiPP, following a number of years working as lecturer and researcher in Europe. His interests are in classroom interaction, corporate business meetings, business workshop facilitation, and guidance counselling in higher education. He is especially interested in exploring the ways through which people make use of the body, gesture, and other resources to facilitate communication.
Through this placement Spencer has written articles for The Times newspaper, these include information about research at Cern "Cern seeks your help to make the next discovery" and the science of cloning "Cloned pets may be nothing like the original, Dolly scientist warns".
The School would like to congratulate Spencer on his success and wish him well during his fellowship with The Times.
