Amelie is on a POST Fellowship

In September, Amelie started a three-months fellowship in UK Parliament. She is working in the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST), the Parliament’s in-house source of independent, balanced and accessible analysis of public policy issues related to science and technology. Within this fellowship, Amelie is learning how to write for policy and express complex ideas to a broad audience. At the end, Amelie will publish an impartial briefing for Members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords on screen time/use and health in young people. Amelie’s fellowship is sponsored by the Nuffield Foundation.
