Walker Institute - Meet Luisa

Monday, September 17, 2018

We would like to introduce Luisa Ciampi, one of our new staff members who is joining us full-time this term. Luisa has joined us as the Impact Officer at the Walker Institute having previously worked as a manager within the Support Centre for the Humanities and SPIER department.

She is currently studying her PhD at the University of Reading with a current working title of:

Understanding the gendered nature of the knowledge transfer process in agricultural communication services in Zimbabwe: A comparative mapping study of commercial and non- governmental approaches

Luisa will be travelling to her home country, Zimbabwe, later this year for three months to carry out work for her PhD.

She will be working on new projects we have coming in throughout the year together with our researchers. In addition, she is currently establishing an important method to measure the impact of interdisciplinary research projects.

We at the Walker Institute are thrilled to have Luisa come work with us and look forward to watching her achieve great things in the near future
