It is our pleasure to announce the Second PhD Clinic Workshop, to be held 2nd of May at the Institute of Criminology, Room B4 (4 - 6 pm).

The theme of the Workshop will be ‘How to conduct good research’.

On the day we will be joined by Dr Alex Kogan. Alex is the Director of the Cambridge Prosociality and Well-being Lab (, where he investigates human behavior and tries to answer such interesting questions as: What makes people kind? When do we cooperate and how do we form prosocial relations? And what makes us happy in the long term?

In a record time, Alex has established himself as a rising name in the field of psychology, won numerous grants and awards, and soon after became a director of his own research lab. He is therefore ideally suited to talk to us and give insights about how to do science correctly and successfully.

Whereas our first introductory workshop in March was more theoretical, during the second Clinic session we plan to get our hands dirty with more practical issues:

- Is my experimental design effective?

- Am I doing the right stats?

- How do I interpret the results of my analysis?

- What is the practical impact of my research and how do I communicate it effectively?


If you think these issues are relevant to your research, please get in touch with us using our Website ( or Facebook ( and submit a question. Due to time limitations we can only fit in a couple of your questions, so if you want yours answered contact us early and grab a spot!

We are looking forward to seeing many of you there for another afternoon of science, fun, and nibbles.
