Kieren Eyles, who graduated from the psychology department last year, has been awarded the Jonathan Sime Award. This prestigious annual award is open to all undergraduates attending a British University. The award, which recognises a significant contribution to the field of people-environment research in an undergraduate dissertation, was for Kieren’s final year project, entitled Attention Fatigue vs. Attention Restoration: The attentional effects of direct and indirect exposure to natural and urban environments. In addition to a prize of £150, Kieren will have the opportunity to publish a short paper in his research in the Bulletin of the International Association for People-Environment Studies (IAPS). The Psychology Department warmly congratulates Kieren on his success!
