Researchers short-listed for award

Posted on 5th November 2012

Researchers at the Centre have been short-listed for a major science visualisation award, run by the National Science Foundation in the USA.

The award is in association with the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the entry from Dr Will Stahl-Timmins and colleagues has already made it into the top 10 within its category.

Their information graphic poster is a novel way of explaining the complex systems by which pharmaceutical products can end up in our environment – a process which can lead to unintended human and animal exposure.

Working closely with environmental chemist Dr Clare Redshaw and psychologist Dr Mathew White, Dr Stahl-Timmins has sought to visualise processes which may, at first sight, seem unconnected. Dr Stahl-Timmins’ research focuses on the visual presentation of data and information and he uses information graphics, interactive media, and visual communication to promote understanding of technical concepts.
