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. 


Dr Rie Sugimoto is Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) within Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

She joined ISVR in 2003 and has been a member of the Acoustics Group (formerly Fluid Dynamics and Acoustics Group) and the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre in Propulsion Systems Noise (Noise UTC) since then.

Rie obtained BEng and also MEng (two-year research degree) at Kobe University in Japan where she studied Architecture and Environmental Planning, and specialised in acoustics and numerical acoustics. She then joined Kobe Steel Ltd in Japan as a researcher in acoustics and worked for a wide range of noise and acoustics issues including infrasound from large industrial conveyors, booming noise in construction machinery cabs, noise canceller and switching system for speaker phones, with key responsibility for the improvements and applications of boundary element models and the development of noise proof and absorbing facilities for traffic noise. She pursued her interest in numerical acoustics when she moved to the UK in 2000 to take a position at Durham University on a three-year research project on the partition-of-unity finite elements with which she also obtained a PhD. She took a short-term appointment at Loughborough University to work on acoustic impedance modelling of an aperture with grazing flow in 2003, before moving to Southampton.

Since joining ISVR, she has specialised in ‘duct acoustics’ research for aircraft engine noise, committed to computational modelling and validations of fan noise propagation and attenuation in turbofan intakes and bypass ducts and radiation to the exterior, acoustic liner optimisations, and complex three-dimensional effects on the fan tone noise.

Rie Sugimoto is a member of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA), American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV), Acoustical Society of Japan (ASJ), Institute of Noise Control Engineering / Japan (INCE/J), Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME), and Architectural Institute of Japan (AIJ).

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.
