University of Southampton
Doctoral College Manager
Aline Giordano is the University of Southampton Doctoral College Manager. Her role is about providing the support needed for doctoral researchers to maximise their contribution to the University whilst enhancing their experience, and that of others, along the way. This is achieved through a number of means, including high quality data-gathering and monitoring, facilitating strong collaboration between research disciplines, providing doctoral researchers with an active voice in decision-making processes and working with the Students’ Union to foster a vibrant, engaging and supportive community. Due to the nature of postgraduate research provision she is called on to work with a very wide range of colleagues across professional services and faculties. As Diversity Champion she also works closely with HR, especially colleagues engaged with the Athena SWAN agenda.
