Education, position summary, research

You can format these fields using the following (limited) HTML tags. Remember that HTML tags typically start with an <opening tag> and end with a </closing tag>. W3 Schools is a good resource if you want to learn more.

  • Paragraph tag surrounds a paragraph and leaves margins on the top and bottom
    ie. <p>This is a paragraph</p>
  • Break tag does not have a closing tag - breaks the line without leaving margins on the top and bottom
    ie. I am writing some text<br>
  • Anchor tag creates a link - the text between the tags being the linked text
    ie. <a href="http://www.website.com">Link</a>
  • An ordered list is one whose list items are numbered - every item in the list is signified by the list item tag
    ie. <ol><li>Item one</li><li>Item two</li></ol>
  • An unordered list is one whose list items are bulleted - every item in the list is signified by the list item tag
    ie. <ul><li>Item one</li><li>Item two</li></ul>

Research areas

In order for your profile to appear under a particular research area (in one of the "People by Research Area" lists), you must check off the Research Area(s) you belong to in your profile.

Please only check off the areas that you work in. Any groups that you are not formally a part of should instead be listed under Research Interests.
