Two other MDX Students gave excellent presentations at the event and received praise from the judging panels for the rigor of their research. Final year Media Student Joann Joseph, supervised by Dr Cody Paris, presented a paper titled ‘How is Snapchat Used as a Platform to Advertise Products and Services to its Millennial Audience in the UAE?’. Third year Education Student Aliah Fareed Lufti Ali Harmouzi, supervised by Ms Lotty Horlings-Plender presented ‘Parent Attitudes Towards, and Reliance on Handheld Devices’.

The three Students were supported by Middlesex University Dubai’s Student Research Committee (Dr Fehmida Hussain, Dr Lynda Hyland, Dr Anita Shrivastava Kashi and Dr Daphne Demetriou) in preparation for the presentations.
