Workshop Facilitators:  

Dr Samuel Fairlamb is a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway, University of London. He primarily teaches Research Methods and Social Psychology to undergraduate and postgraduate students. His research is formed of two main interests: (1) the need for self-esteem and meaning to buffer from existential-based concerns, and how this can be applied to a variety of human phenomena, including why humans struggle to peacefully co-exist; (2) how the need for self-esteem can lead to counter-productive outcomes to effective learning in an educational-based environment. Sam is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.


Dr. Karl Wereszczynski and Vanita Chamdal are both teaching demonstrators in the Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway, where they primarily teach research methods and statistics to undergraduate students. They will be assisting with the running of the SPSS workshop.
