29/02/2016


Dr Laura Taylor from the School of Psychology presented her research entitled: “The Civic challenges for the generation born after peace” at an event held on Wednesday 11 November as part of the DNA of Innovation series. 

This free event showcased 32 talented women and men in the early stages of their research careers, working on projects that have local and global impact. Each of them are profiled in a new publication, ‘The DNA of Innovation, Volume V: New Voices, New Impact’ which will be launched at the event.

Laura is part of an interdisciplinary international team, who are working on a longitudinal study involving 1,000 mother-and-child pairs, examining the relations between political violence and well-being of children.

Queen’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Patrick Johnston said:

“Today’s event introduces an inspiring new generation who are adding to the success of Queen’s world-leading research. While in the early stages of their careers, these talented researchers are already engaged in work that is of global importance. They come from more than a dozen countries and work across international boundaries and academic disciplines on projects that have the potential to change lives."
