The Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH): A Literature Review on the Rehabilitation Treatment (2023)
Journal Article

Introduction. The diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH), also known as Forestier-Rotès-Querol disease, is a systemic pathology characterized by the diffuse ossification of the ligaments of the spinal column. It can be linked to several meta... Read More about The Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH): A Literature Review on the Rehabilitation Treatment.

What Have You Learned? Matching Academic Content to Employability Skills in an Economics Undergraduate Programme (2023)
Journal Article

In economics and social sciences in general, it is often difficult for students to connect theory with practice and identify how material that is being taught, develops discipline-specific skills, and importantly, in this context, employability (...

Leaving Egos Outside: A 'Reverse Mentoring' Study of BAME Psychology Students and Senior University Leaders (2023)
Journal Article

This Highlight article describes a small pilot study of a ‘reverse mentoring’ study in a UK university, involving five undergraduate Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) psychology students who mentored five senior leaders. Inverted commas wer... Read More about Leaving Egos Outside: A 'Reverse Mentoring' Study of BAME Psychology Students and Senior University Leaders.

Spot, treat and stop delirium: Acceptability and feasibility of a novel ‘Delirium Wheel App’ to identify and manage delirium in a care home setting in the United Kingdom (2023)
Presentation / Conference

AbstractBackgroundDelirium is common in elderly, frail residents in care home settings, who may already be suffering from dementia. The prevalence of delirium in nursing homes can be up to 60%. Care home staff are potentially in a unique position to...

Lay, professional, and police rape stereotype acceptance in England and Wales: A holistic, mixed-methods overview of the Criminal Justice System (2023)
Thesis

This thesis examined rape stereotype acceptance and use in England and Wales, viewed through the lens of Social Representations Theory (SRT). Given the high attrition rate and low prosecution rate for rape, the project was a holistic look at stereoty...

Hydrodynamic simulations of convection and nucleosynthesis in the late phases of massive stars to constrain and guide stellar evolution theory (2023)
Thesis

The present knowledge of stellar evolution is still limited today by large uncertainties that derive from the complex multi-dimensional processes occurring in stars. Among them, the turbulent motions of the stellar fluid control the size and evolutio...

Recreating arterial thrombosis models using tissue-engineered arterial constructs: A method to reduce and replace mice used in platelet research (2023)
Thesis

Intravital microscopy in mice is widely used to study in vivo thrombus formation, however, the relevance of these studies to human physiology is unclear. In this thesis, a 3D tissue-engineered human arterial construct (TEAC) was developed that replic...
