Welcome to new workshop coordinators!
We’re really excited to have Ans Vercammen & Rania Poulis join the repliCATS project team to help coordinate our 2021 bushel workshops.
Ans Vercammen is trained as a research psychologist and completed a PhD in behavioural and cognitive neuroscience, studying the origins of auditory hallucinations. More recently, her interests have shifted away from neuropsychology to understanding why people (don’t) make pro-environmental choices and how to support environmental decision making at various scales. After completing an MSc in Conservation Science, she joined the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College London, working with Mark Burgman on expert judgement. She recently joined the repliCATS Project to help coordinate Phase 2 workshops and conduct qualitative analyses as part of the Reasoning Team.
Rania Poulis has had a varied career beginning as a research assistant with a molecular biology/genomics background. She spent many years working to increase and improve gene-specific databases; this included a large amount of international conference organisation for the purpose of improving healthcare under the auspices of the Human Variome Project, an NGO of UNESCO. More recently Rania has been organising conferences for various scientific organisations and joined the team to help coordinate Phase 2 workshops and organise the AIMOS conference.
