Introducing Lillian Ward

Meet Lillian Ward, who joined the Contemplative Studies Centre as a Research Assistant in February 2023.

Lillian's role involves assisting in designing, implementing, and reporting on the Centre’s research projects. She enjoys collaborating with the passionate academic researchers on many exciting research projects, and especially enjoys how the interdisciplinary ethos of the Centre encourages fresh ideas and unexpected connections.

Lillian is passionate about pursuing rigour and equity in research. She is also particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms of emotional communication and profound emotional experiences.

When she's not working, Lillian spends as much time as she can gardening and making music.
