Today the Centre for Social Informatics welcomes its newest member of staff: Dr Frances Ryan has taken up a lecturing post with us. This is a return to our group at Edinburgh Napier University for Frances: she graduated from Napier with a PhD in July 2019. In the intervening time, Frances has been engaged in postdoctoral research, first here at Napier and then at the Universities of Dundee and Aberdeen.
- John Marshall and Marianne Wilson, who – like Frances – are not entirely ‘new’ to us. In 2020/21 they successfully completed their MSc(R) degrees at the University of Edinburgh as the +1 year of their 4-year ESRC/SDS-funded PhD programmes, and transferred to Napier at the start of this academic year.
- Aleksander Bielinski, who is also supported by an ESRC/SDS scholarship, and has entered the first year of his PhD programme directly from Masters study at the University of Strathclyde.
- Maria Cecil, our newest PhD student funded by ESRC/SDS, who has just started the Masters year of her 1+3 doctoral degree at the University of Edinburgh
