Elvira Perez – Safe Space, UoN Vision Magazine

Dr Elvira Perez Vallejos is based at the Institute for Mental Health and is part of a multi-disciplinary team of researchers at Horizon – a centre of excellence for digital economy research at the University of Nottingham. Professor McAuley, Director at Horizon explains: “As independent experts, we have a responsibility to society to engage with decision-makers who set goals, make rules and prepare guidelines.”

In an article entitled “Safe space” in the October edition of Vision magazine, Elvira talks about her research involving young people addressing online safety – “from the outset we were asking: how will our research address the evidence needs of policymakers, how can it translate to policy?”
