Research into Careers of Female Academics wins MASRC Poster Competition

Wednesday, 12 September 2018


The annual Markets and Services Research Centre (MASRC) Research Poster Competition has kicked off Research Week for the School of Business and Law.

With a number of fantastic entries this year, the winner was Fleur Sharafizad who submitted a poster on her research topic, The Careers of female academics: Bottlenecks in the academic pipeline.

Fleur said the main challenge was to encapsulate her research in a way that was captivating and interesting.

"My study is clearly not the first exploring gender equity in academia, so it was important to make the case, through graphs and tables, that there is a lack of research around specific bottlenecks in the academic pipeline for female academics."

"I have enjoyed the challenge of creating the poster and would recommend other research students to take part if they get the opportunity to do so."

Second place went to Shahid Hussain with a poster on, Customer switching behaviour in the WA electricity market. Third place was awarded to Chen Zhao Xu who tackled, Exploring kitchen preparation food wastage in downstream hotel supply chain: An elicitation study using the theory of planned behaviour.

Well done to all of the School's HDR students who entered.
