The Lucy Cavendish Research Day was organised by Research Fellow Dr Sarah Morgan

Free and open to all, it presented an opportunity for research ideas or outcomes to reach a wider audience; a short Q&A session after each talk enabled participants to dig deeper into specific areas of interest. View the 2020 Research Day photo album.

The presentations were illustrated on the day by one of the speakers, Julia Hayes, 3rd year PhD whose research focuses on Colombian children with disabilities. She combines her passion for art with academic research.
