Thesis Title: A gender study of the LIS academics’ productivity in the UK
Supervisor: Vanda Broughton
Second Supervisor: Rob Miller
I have completed my PhD at Department of Information Studies (DIS) at UCL. My thesis was a gender study of the LIS academics’ productivity in the UK.
I used bibliometrics and statistical analysis for gathering and analysing my data. Comparing different aspects of productivity among LIS male and female academics was the main part of my study.
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 manager which involves managing and developing learning services for students.
