Researchers Hjördis Lorenz and Anna-Katharina Bauer were among those who shared their work with alumni

On Friday 14th Sept and Saturday 15th Sept, Experimental Psychology took part in our very first Oxford Alumni Weekend. The programme was a great success, with over 60 alumni visiting us over the course of the two days. The Alumni Weekend programme, now in its 12th year, allows alumni to stay in touch with new developments and research taking place within the university. 

Our sessions were themed around the question "What's new in Experimental Psychology?", focusing on both changes in the department and new applications of psychological research. Visitors began their evening with a short tour of the Anna Watts building and a quick overview of our moves from the Tinbergen Building and the developments that have taken place in the department over the past few years. They then enjoyed a series of fascinating research talks from Nahid ZokaeiMichele VeldsmanCharles SpenceDavid Clark and Charles Hulme highlighting the ways in which our department's research improves people's lives in the areas of neurodegenerative disease, food and consumption, mental health, and education. 

Particular thanks are due to the early-career researchers who shared their work with our alumni over informal tea, cakes and drinks, including Greg SimmondsGiedrė Čepukaitytė, Anna-Katharine Bauer, Sam Hall-McMasterAlizée Lopez-PersemHjördis Lorenz, Tanja Muellerand Maud Grol.
