Congratulations to Kate Nation, Professor of Experimental Psychology, who is one of 73 leading social scientists to be elected to the Fellowship of the Academy of Social Sciences. All have been elected for their outstanding contributions to research, and for their application of social science to policy, education, society and the economy.
The Academy’s Fellowship is made up of distinguished individuals from academic, public and private sectors, across the full breadth of the social sciences. Through leadership, applied research, policymaking and practice, they have helped to address and deepen understanding of some of the toughest challenges facing our society and the world. Their work has contributed to the UK’s position as a global leader in the social sciences.
I’m thrilled! As with any award, it really is a reflection of collaborative effort. I’ve been lucky to work with exceptional colleagues, collaborators and students over the years, and to have enjoyed steadfast support from the department and my college. It’s a huge honour to see our work recognised in this way — and wonderful to see psychology and language sciences supported by the Academy of Social Sciences.
