Documenting our journey in devising a sustainable strategy for integrating public engagement methods into the student learning experience

About us

Dr Sally Adams is a lecturer in Health Psychology at the University of Bath. Her research examines how drugs of abuse, such as alcohol and tobacco, impair decision-making, risk-taking and response to drug cues. She is passionate about science communication and strongly believes that the general public should have access to evidence based information about their health.

Dr Katie Maras is a lecturer in Psychology and Deputy Director (Public Engagement) of the Centre for Applied Autism Research at Bath. Her research focuses on the issues that autistic individuals face in important real life interviewing contexts such as the Criminal Justice System, healthcare consultations, and employment interviews. Stakeholder collaboration and end user engagement are core features throughout the lifecycle of much of her research, which she believes is key to conducting research with real world impact.
