Being and Becoming a Professor - a personal view of work-life (im)balance

Date/Time: Tuesday, 13th June 2017, 14:00 - 15:00

Venue: Room 1.01, Claremont Tower

Carron Shankland is a Professor in Computing Science at the University of Sterling.

In 2016 she was one of twelve women in Computing and Mathematics to receive a Suffrage Science Award, recognising both scientific achievement and ability to inspire others. Carron is passionate about the promotion of careers in science for women, having initiated and led the Athena SWAN programme of actions at Stirling for four years. She chairs the BCS Women in Computing Research Group and is building Cygnets: a good practice network of UK computing departments engaged in gender equality work.

Carron will talk about her journey from student to professor, with some thoughts about the people and qualities that lead to success, and how those qualities can also be enemies. This should be relevant for everyone, no matter their career stage, academic or professional services, or discipline.
