Elizabeth Dallaston, one of ACHLR’s recently enrolled PhD students describes some of her highlights so far:

“Joining ACHLR as an HDR student has introduced me to a network of transdisciplinary researchers focused on real world problems. My supervisors at ACHLR got to know me as an individual, and tailored their approach to my current abilities and professional goals. This makes it easy to stay passionate about my research.

As an HDR student at QUT, I have support from our fantastic library staff and access to extra training in cutting edge research methods and digital literacy skills through Graduate Research Education & Development”
