Economic and Social Research Council’s Impact Awards 2018
Cutting Edge Research at the Behavioural Research Lab
Brett Heasman, a PhD student at LSE’s Psychological and Behavioural Science Department, was awarded the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) Future Promise prize last week at an awards ceremony acknowledging researchers from a range of disciplines whose work has had a meaningful impact on society or the economy. The Future Promise prize is intended to recognise applicants whose research shows great promise and future potential for impact on society, in Brett’s case around insights into autistic people’s perspectives. In collaboration with LSE’s Behavioural Research Lab, Brett’s research has helped to challenge public perceptions of autism and to facilitate understanding between people with autism and their families. Professor Jennifer Rubin, Executive Chair of the ESRC commented: “The calibre of the candidates was very high, and the panel agreed to award this prize to Mr Heasman for the originality of his work and clear transformative potential.”
