The Laidlaw Scholars Network Guide

Dear Scholars, we have created the document below to explain the purpose of the Laidlaw Scholars Network, the wonderful opportunities it offers, and how to navigate it (in detail!). Tip: view the guide in its full glory by downloading it, rather than using the up/down arrows to change pages!

Hello! I am fascinated with all things human- & design-related. My university research focused on the effects of design on patient wellbeing in hospitals. I employed ethnographic methods to investigate whether design elements, such as colour, light, and form can have a significant impact on medical recovery. Throughout my degree, I also took modules in ethnographic documentary filmmaking, philosophy of science, and anthropology of architecture among other (less interesting-sounding) things. If you need any guidance on using the site (or if you just want to chat), contact me using the chat app on the Network website, or drop a line at!
