We are delighted that Martha Bloom of Sussex University has completed her PhD and is now an economist/policy analyst at the OECD.
Research for her thesis, entitled ‘Creative Arts and STEM Fusion in and around the UK Creative Industries: A multi-level study’, was supported by RADMA.
RADMA provides a range of funding to support Postgraduate Student Researchers such as Martha.
Over recent months this has included:
Conference funding support
Runyue Han, from University of Liverpool, gained a travel grant towards expenses involved in presenting her paper ‘The impact of NPD-focused social media technologies on firm performance: evidence from US-listed companies’ at the DRUID phd23 Academy Conference, held in Denmark in January.
Runyue recently won an Outstanding Paper Award from Emerald Literati Awards 2022 based on her research entitled: ‘Artificial intelligence in business-to-business marketing: A bibliometric analysis of current research status, development and future directions’, which was published in Industrial Management & Data Systems. Runyue’s research is based on her master’s dissertation, which received a distinction, and was supervised by Professor Hugo Lam.
