Celebrating Student Research: Middlesex University Dubai holds the Fourth Annual Student Research Symposium

15/11/2015

The Fourth Annual Middlesex University Dubai Student Research Symposium was held on Sunday, November 15th, 2015 at Block 4, Knowledge Village Dubai. In line with Middlesex University Dubai’s research strategy, the  event promotes student research by providing students a platform to present their research work carried out as part of their study as coursework or final dissertations. The symposium is annually organized by the Student Research Sub-Committee – Dr. Fehmida Hussain (Chair), Dr. Lynda Hyland, and Dr. Tenia Kyriazi.

During the Symposium, students presented their work through illustrated posters and discussed their findings with the attendees. There were 19 submissions comprising of both undergraduate and postgraduate students representing various disciplines ranging from Information Technology, Social Sciences, Psychology, Media, Marketing, Finance and Education. The Symposium’s participants were all nominated by their supervisors for their outstanding and exemplary research.  Dean of Business School, Middlesex University London, Anna Kyprianou was present at the occasion and appreciated the quality and enthusiasm of the students.

While all of the presenters were offered participation certificates in recognition of the quality of their research, three ‘Best Poster’ awards were also presented for the top students’ Undergraduate and Postgraduate research work based on feedback from an expert panel in three categories (UG Individual, UG Group, and PG work).  An expert panel of judges evaluated each poster on the basis of criteria including academic rigor, theoretical/practical implications and contributions, and the quality of presentations. The judges at this event were Evangelos Moustakas, Kieran Ross, Keith Reynolds, Anita Kashi, Tenia Kyriazi, Krishnadas Nanath, Engie Bashir, Michael King and Anna Kyprianou.

The undergraduate group award was won by Humna Azhar and Zahra Baig, supervised by Dr. Eleni Petkari,      on the topic of ‘Do you sway my emotions? Social predictors of emotional regulation: Effects of perceived social support and parenting styles.’

The undergraduate individual award was won by Tina Andreassen, supervised by Mahine Rizvi and Dr Cody Paris, on the topic of ‘An Exploratory Study of the Social and Economic Realities and Opportunities of Low-income Arab Female Migrants in the UAE.’

The Postgraduate award was won by Mathew Peet supervised by Dr. Krishnadas Nanath on the topic of ‘Enterprise transformation through the Open Compute Project: a case study of Facebook.’
