Congratulations to ASIST Annual Lecture 2016 bursary award winners #asist_al16

Congratulations to three research students who have won bursary award places to support attendance at the ASIST Annual Lecture 2016, and an Information Science Masterclass hosted by Edinburgh Napier University. Both events take place next week in Edinburgh on Wednesday 30th November 2016.

The three students, who were selected following consideration of a strong set of applications, are:

Kahina Le Louvier, Northumbria University
Kahina’s research concerns migrants and their digital heritage. She is a first year student within the School of Computing and Information Sciences at Northumbria University, working under the supervision of Dr Perla Innocenti.

Yuhua Wang, University of Sheffield
Yuhua is undertaking a doctoral study that explores digital inclusion amongst older people. She is also in her first year, and is supervised by Professor Peter Bath at the University of Sheffield’s Information School.

Mengdie Zhuang, University of Sheffield
Mengdie is a second year PhD student working with Professor Elaine Toms on a study that assesses the effectiveness of information retrieval systems. Like Yuhua, she is registered at the Information School at the University of Sheffield.

We are looking forward to welcoming the three bursary award winners at the Craiglockhart campus of Edinburgh Napier University next Wednesday 30th November.
