Doctoral College Research Student Prize

Congratulations to Anna Chalkley for receiving one of five Loughborough University Doctoral College Research Student Prizes.

Anna was nominated by her supervisor Dr Lauren Sherar. Dr Sherar commented that Anna “Demonstrated outstanding academic performance and achievement within her first 2 years of her PhD studies. All of which are over and above her own PhD studies. In addition, to managing and excelling in her own research, Anna has forged several influential academic, and policy related relationships and collaborations which benefit the School/University on an ongoing basis resulting in several professional roles, which all benefit and enhanced the School’s and University’s national and international reputation and visibility.”

The award ceremony took place on 6th June at the Annual Summer Showcase. Dr Jo Harris  attended the event with Anna.

Speaking of the award, Anna said “I’m very proud to have been nominated for a Doctoral College award and very grateful to have such a supportive supervisory team and the flexibility to be able to engage in other activities outside of my PhD role.”
