Available student projects


This project is well suited to students with an interest in the visual communication of science and health facts. They will learn about this, and the process of designing and conducting self-report research. No prior experience in any of these domains is required.

The student will be involved in running a small study which compares people's engagement, recall, and learning from health messages presented in a variety of forms, including infographics and text. Depending on their preference they can learn the appropriate analyses, or have them provided. The student will work with the researcher to interpret the findings, and if they choose can join the PHXchange team in writing a publication based (in part or whole) on their project.
