Chantel Bielmann


Chantal Bielmann is Researcher Development Manager at De Montfort University. The role involves the organisation and management of centralised PGR support and training across the institution. Core to this role is working with all stakeholders (PGRs, academics, professional services, etc.) to deliver a yearly programme of activities, events, workshops and sessions to support PGRs in their research endeavours. Chantal also supports staff who research by organising workshops to support their research career development. In recent years, she has become particularly interested in learning more about factors that may influence methodological choice at a postgraduate level and is currently working on a project to explore this topic. As a researcher developer, Chantal has been regularly active in the field participating in conferences (REDs, VITAE) and also sharing good practice as a member of the East Midlands Doctoral Network.
