Overseas Research Student Award Winner
Thesis Title: A gender study of the LIS academics’ productivity in the UK
Supervisor: Vanda Broughton
Second Supervisor: Rob Miller
I am a PhD student at Department of Information Studies (DIS) at UCL. At the moment, I am awaiting my viva exam. My thesis title is "A gender study of the LIS academics’ productivity in the UK". Using bibliometrics as my main method, I have looked at productivity of the male and female academics within LIS in the UK. In my research, productivity is defined as research output and is measured by the number of academic publications, number of citations and h-index.
My PhD has been funded by the UCL Overseas Research Student Scholarship. In 2007, I also won Thomson Reuters' Roger K. Summit scholarship awards.
I am also working part-time at Oasis College as Learning services coordinator which involves managing the college library and providing study skills support for students.
