In particular Dr Hilari was nominated for providing effective support, regular feedback with honest and constructive criticism. She encourages students to think and go further, to take part in conferences, to publish research outcomes and provides solutions in any difficult situation, at any time.
A Reader in Acquired Language Impairments at City, Dr Katerina Hilari’s work focuses on the long-term impact and psychosocial aspects of adult neurological conditions, with an emphasis on stroke and aphasia. Dr Hilari also has an interest in the effectiveness of speech and language therapy on activities, participation and quality of life, in particular for people with aphasia.
Speaking about the nomination, Dr Hilari said:
“I am delighted to be nominated for this award. Working with PhD students is one of the highlights of my role and I love tackling new projects and the challenges they bring, and help students become confident, independent researchers. This nomination follows my 2015 VC award for Outstanding Doctoral Supervision, where I was put forward by my own students and post-doc researchers. It is the best recognition for me to be recommended by my own students and colleagues.”
