      What qualities to you think makes a deserving winner? That’s up to you. Funny answers/Serious answers. all short answers/ only some answers but long ones. That’s up to you!
      As for how it would benefit me and my research I have a few ideas about how I would spend the money (see my profile) mostly just promoting science/biology in general so it probably wouldn’t impact on my research unless I got an understudy for a bit. If I did that I would have to design experiments for them and I would get some experience at supervising people and teaching (at least I would hope they would learn something).

      If I win the prize money I’ll put it towards coming back to the UK to give careers talks on science in schools. I want more fun, young people to take up science careers!

      Hello again. It would benefit my work by enabling other people to see what really goes on in psychology. I’d like to set up a psychology workshop and invite people to take part in many different psychological tests. We have so many ways to explore people’s memory, attention, visual perception, brain waves, and even extra-sensory perception (‘the 6th sense’)!
