All of our academic Schools websites have a number of web pages that display people profile information. These web pages are automatically generated by combining data from multiple sources and applying a standard layout.

The following information is intended for staff members wishing to update their profile pages.  The information on people pages is publicly accessible and has been optimised for searching. As such, any content published via people profile pages must be appropriate and relevant to the University.

It can take time for any change to cascade through our systems, please wait 24 hours before reporting an issue following an update.
