We Love Research Student Poster Symposium

We Love Research Student Poster Symposium

We had 13 poster presentations in the We Love Research symposium in the Atrium on Valentine's Day. CBCS Research Council members rated the poster presentations and awarded prizes to the Best and Honorable Mention posters in the undergraduate and graduate research categories. The caliber of the presentations was excellent,

The winners in this stiff competition included:

  • Zoe Blair-Andrews, undergraduate student in the School of Social Work, for her poster entitled: Parental Descriptions of Childhood Avoidance Symptoms after Trauma
  • Ashley Knochel, master's student in Applied Behavior Analysis, for her poster entitled: Culturally Focused Staff Training to Increase Praise for Ghanaian Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Honorable mention awards went to:

  • Robert Perkins, Nikki Webster, Amelia Bennett, undergraduate students in Criminology for their poster entitled: The U.S. Missing Persons Project & USF SPRUCE Research Lab
  • Adrian N.S. Badana and Maureen E. Templeman, graduate students in the School of Aging Studies, for their poster entitled: Associations between Workplace Stress and Caregiver Strain in Full-time Employed Caregivers

Thank you to all the faculty, staff, and students who attended this event. It is great to see that the future of the research enterprise in behavioral and community sciences is in such capable hands. This was a lot of fun and we look forward to future We Love Research events.
