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. Aneesh Vincent Veluthandath is a Research Fellow at the Integrated Photonic Devices Lab, ORC, University of Southampton, where he joined in December 2019. The primary focus of his current research is to develop a low-cost single-use photonic platform for rapid diagnosis of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome. This photonic platform will combine the strength of mid- infrared and Raman spectroscopy in a compact, versatile and easily operable device, with the capacity to underpin the next generation biomedical diagnostics applications. He also works on high-Q microcavities with a focus on applications in low-threshold lasing and nonlinear signal conversion.

Dr. Aneesh received his PhD in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, in 2018. During his PhD he experimented on the effects of whispering gallery modes (WGMs) of microspheres on the photoluminescence and Raman scattering of quantum dots and 2D semiconductors. He also invented a simple and robust method to self-assemble polymer micro-bottle resonators. After his PhD, he continued to work as a postdoc at IIT Madras, with a focus on photonic-plasmonic hybrid resonators. In 2019, he joined the IFW Institute for Integrative Nanosciences, Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research, Dresden as a postdoc. During this time, he worked on rolled-up microcavities. His responsibilities at IFW Dresden included designing and building an integrated experimental system for simultaneous measurements of angle-resolved photoluminescence and transmission spectra of rolled-up microcavities.

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.
