Currently in her third year of studying towards a PhD in Psychology with a focus on Human Factors, Ilinca graduated with a first-class honours undergraduate degree in 2017 and with an MRes in Psychology in 2019.
Ilinca has published her PhD work on fatigue, stress and situation awareness in farming via academic journals, guest blogs and as part of the annual Farm Safety Week. Her focus on excellent communication of research resulted in her winning the University of Aberdeen Excellence award for public engagement (early career) in 2022. Her PhD project encompasses investigation into the safety critical skill situation awareness, and the factors that might impact that skill, in both farming and forestry contexts. Ilinca has also undertaken work on a variety of other projects as part of the APHF team, including research investigating farmer attitudes, development of the FLINTS behavioural marker system, and projects examining workplace rudeness.
