A smart African researcher, Josephine Agyeman-Duah, has won the Ph.D. Student of the Year for the Postgraduate Award 2022 at Oxford University.
The award acknowledges her excellent and inquisitive role as a researcher in the INTERGROWTH-21ST research group.
Josephine, who is a DPhil student at the Nuffield Department of Women’s and Reproductive Health, saw off competition from hundreds of nominees to clinch the award.
INTERGROWTH-21ST is committed to improving perinatal health, developing new fetal and newborn growth standards, and providing tools for continuity of care from conception to five years old.
Agyeman-Duah’s research, which focuses on neurodevelopmental assessment at age two for all children born preterm, aligns with the group’s aims.
Josephine has also been recognised by The Family Larsson Rosenquist Foundation as a positive change agent for making a global impact beyond her PhD studies
