Dr Martin Robinson joins our PhD Supervisory team under a PDC initiative
The School of Psychology has recently engaged in a Postdoctoral Development Centre scheme whereby existing researchers can expand their remit into supervisory roles
Martin is a Research Fellow in the Stress, Trauma, and Related Conditions (STARC) in the School of Psychology. Martin’s current work on the MI-VIDA Project is an investigation examining biopsychosocial risk and resilience factors for mental ill-health following traumatic stress in Colombia. Martin's main research interests are concerned with the study of psychotraumatology, mental health, and with encouraging positive reproductive and relationship health among males.
Martin joins Rian Delaney’s supervisory team. Rian’s research is aligned with the MI-VIDA project and analyses the survey data collected as part of this project to investigate factors predicting resilience following trauma in this cohort. Martin provides guidance in research methods, administration, and mentoring to support Rian’s studentship.
“The Assistant Supervisor scheme is a terrific opportunity for development for post-doc researchers. It provides a pathway to training and developing skills for career development, and also formal recognition the work that we do in supporting PhD researchers. I feel it helps build a sense of academic community around our students and provides them the best support in their learning.”
