Dr Helen Higgins

Institute of Veterinary Science, University of Liverpool
Helen is a farm vet and RCVS Specialist in Cattle Health and Production. After 8 years working in clinical practice, she undertook a Master’s degree in Statistics and a PhD at Nottingham University, funded by a Wellcome Trust Fellowship. In terms of research, Helen is especially interested in how people change their beliefs when presented with new evidence. This could be in any context but to date her experiments have been in a farm animal veterinary context. This research is cross-disciplinary (psychology and statistics) and links into Helen’s other main area of interest which is behaviour change. Helen is keen to expand her research methods into a classroom setting, investigating how students (of any age) update their pre-existing beliefs when given new information, and how and why they trust different sources of information.
