Dr Jack commented: “I am absolutely thrilled to receive the Spearman Medal. My greatest thanks goes to the BPS for awarding this prize, and especially to Professor Simon Garrod who nominated me. It is a great honour to join such a stellar list of previous winners, many of whom have inspired and shaped the field. I hope that my work will inspire the new generation of researchers, and to encourage wider participation in psychological science.”
