University scientist added to databank of excellent women researchers
Based on a recommendation, Dr Lorna Dougan (School of Physics and Astronomy) has been added to online databank, AcademiaNet, which aims to bring excellent women researchers into the spotlight.
By providing numerous profiles of excellent women academics from every
discipline, AcademiaNet hopes to make them more visible and more easily accessible. This in
turn will make it easier to fill leadership positions and scientific bodies with
women academics. Other target groups include journalists and conference
organisers searching for proven experts.
Dr Dougan's admission to AcademiaNet is a great sign of quality for the University, since all scientists found on the site are carefully selected by project partners against a set of strict criteria.
