Social media: A guide for researchers (Pat Heslop case study)
I am currently working as a Professor of Molecular Cytogenetics and Cell biology at the University of Leicester. My interests include genetic diversity, crop plant evolution and breeding, genomics and functional genomics, systems biology and interactions between genes etc
When publishing my work I prefer to use more traditional ways like publishing in journals and presenting in conferences, but also talking to people for original stuff.
I usually use social media in my professional and personal life. Speciﬁcally, I use blogging, micro blogging, social citation, social/ professional networking tools and aggregators and dashboards like Netvibes and iGoogle.
All of the social media tools I use are very useful and important in my life and research all for different reasons. I don’t speciﬁcally use on or rely on any because they might start changing or go bust or have other difﬁcult changes.
