The first impression matters

Profiles are the primary way to showcase your expertise and your work. Your profile page will be the top result when colleagues, potential grad students and reporters search for you. It also acts as a hub for visitors to see links to your lab pages, ResearchGate profile, CV and book websites.

If you are starting from scratch, please email Alan at least the minimal profile info listed below.

If you already have a profile page and just want to update/modify some info - simply email Alan the new content.

Available fields

The profile page is database driven. There are a limited handful of data and file fields to use. The available fields cover most needs. If needed there is a "spotlight" field that can include content not available in other fields. Unfortunately, their location on the page cannot be changed.

Minimal profile page

These fields should be considered the minimal amount required for a profile page:

  • Preferred name with all your credentials such as Ph.D.,ScD, MPH, etc.
  • Contact info
  • CV
  • Short paragraph description of current research interests
  • School, program or other affiliations
  • Related websites or other links - such as lab website, ResearchGate, Twitter, Google Scholar

Optimal profile page

In order to maximize your profile page, please make sure you also include:

  • Biography - short paragraph about your professional journey to CPHHS
  • Personal interests - you are more than your work persona.
  • In the news - are you mentioned in specific media articles?
  • Spotlight - we can highlight recent books or other content.

Degree listings

As per AP style guide. Degrees earned by faculty and display with name are listed as follows.

  • listed highest to lowest. Thus Ph.D. is listed before MBA or MPH
  • only highest in a field is listed. Thus if a faculty member has earned both an MPH and Ph.D. in Epi only the Ph.D. is used.

External profile services

Consider using Google Scholar Citations or ResearchGate, both of which provide a simple way for authors to keep track of article citations. You can check who is citing your publications, graph citations over time and compute several citation metrics. ResearchGate is a great way to support and build your graduate students' professional profiles.
