How to update your personal details

Profile photo 
Upload your profile photo in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Your profile photo in Pure is not linked to your public staff profile. Choose a clear, recent headshot where you are easily recognisable. Your image should be at least 340 by 395 pixels. 

To change your name or prefix title contact Ask HR (opens in new tab)  If you want to update an academic title you'll need to provide evidence e.g. a PhD certificate. The way your name is displayed is automatic and cannot be changed. You can also update your post-nominal letters in Subscribe (opens in a new tab).

Job title 
Raise a request through ServiceNow (opens in a new tab) to change your job title (40 characters maximum) unless you're on the ERE career pathway. If you're on the ERE path you can not change your main job title, but you can request other minor updates through Ask HR (opens in new tab). If you have more than one post only your main job title will display here, but you can add further posts or roles in other sections of your profile.

Research interests (for researchers only) 
Add up to 5 research interests. The first 3 will appear in your staff profile next to your name. The full list will appear on your research page. Keep these brief and focus on the keywords people may use when searching for your work. Use a different line for each one.

In Pure (opens in a new tab), select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading 'Curriculum and research description', select 'Add profile information'. In the dropdown menu, select 'Research interests: use separate lines'.

Contact details 
Add or update your email address, telephone number and postal address in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Use your University email address for your primary email. 

You can link to your Google Scholar, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts through Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’.  In the 'Links' section, use the 'Add link' button. 

Create or connect your ORCID ID in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’ and then 'Create or Connect your ORCID ID'.

Accepting PhD applicants (for researchers only) 
Choose to show whether you’re currently accepting PhD applicants or not in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’. In the 'Portal details' section, select 'Yes' or 'No' to indicate your choice. 


Professor Niblo carries out research at the interfaces between geometry, group theory, topology and analysis with a particular interest in the large scale geometry of spaces of non-positive curvature. He has worked with a number of colleagues in mathematics, science and engineering to explore these topics and some of their applications and have worked in departments including Sussex, Queen Mary College London and his current home, the University of Southampton.

Graham was awarded an SERC Postdoctoral Fellowship in 1988 and a Leverhulme Fellowship in 2011 during which he spent time at Exeter College, Oxford, and his research has also been funded by EPSRC, the Royal Society and the NSF. He has had the privilege of working with a number of fantastic postdocs, funded by organisations ranging from EPSRC to the Sino-British Trust:

Dr. L.D. Reeves, EPSRC Research Assistant 1994, subsequently at Oklahoma, Oxford, Marseille. Now Senior Lecturer at Melbourne.

Dr. M.E. Sageev, EPSRC Research Assistant 1995-1997, subsequently tenure track at Rutgers, now Professor, Technion.

Dr. J. Crisp, EPSRC Research Assistant1997-1998, now Chargé de Recherche CNRS, Dijon.

Dr. S.J.Campbell, EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellow 2005-2009, now retired (ill health). 

Dr. N.J. Wright, Leverhulme Research Fellow 2006-2007, now Associate Professor, Southampton.

How to update your 'about' section

You can update this in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading and then ‘Curriculum and research description’, select ‘Add profile information’. In the dropdown menu, select - ‘About’.

Write about yourself in the third person. Aim for 100 to 150 words covering the main points about who you are and what you currently do. Clear, simple language is best. You can include specialist or technical terms.

You’ll be able to add details about your research, publications, career and academic history to other sections of your staff profile.
