Ms Nicky Baker, a Hub PhD student who is based at Flinders University in Adelaide, recently participated in ‘DocFest 2020’ which is a week-long festival to showcase the University’s higher degree by research students in a range of interactive activities, events and competitions.

Looking at the schedule on the website, it certainly looks like it was a fun week for the HDR students! Here is what Nicky has to say about the event:

“Flinders University DocFest 2020 week was fantastic! There were numerous activities offered and a variety of ways to engage – Tweet your PhD, post-study employment workshops, the Write Bunch writing group, and poster pitch competitions, to name a few. The poster pitch was conducted to provide students with the opportunity to complement their poster with a two-minute presentation of the research. The presentation needed to address the problem being investigated, the research contribution, its novelty, and its application to the broader community. I am honoured and delighted to have won the prize for ‘Best HDR student poster presentation’ in College of Nursing and Health Sciences for my research in ‘Stumbles and near-falls: validating tests to identify risk’.”

Nicky took part in two of the competitions – Poster Presentation and Tweet your PhD, and whilst her eye-catching poster took out the top gong for the College of Nursing and Health, her Tweet your PhD entry did pretty well with good impressions and engagement statistics.

We look forward to hearing further updates on Nicky’s project and are confident that it will introduce positive impact on our community and on the lives of all Australians.
