I can’t draw a speech bubble from the photo, but this is me, Emma Sabzalieva. Hello!
My day job is a full-time university manager/administrator in the UK but I write this blog in a personal capacity. In my spare time (!), I’m a budding researcher in the field of Central Asian higher education and social change – click here for my Academia.edu profile. I’ve also published on UK higher education and in 2014 will have a book published with Palgrave Macmillan. Co-authored with Michelle Gander and Heather Moyes, Managing your career in higher education administration will join the Universities into the 21st century series.
This blog is designed to be a way to channel all the weird and wonderful things I read and hear about in the hope that others might find it interesting too. As the blog sub-title suggests, the posts are about Central Asia, higher education, and sometimes the two together – see my intro post for more on the themes.
I should point out that anything I post represents my personal views, so please don’t think I’m writing for or on behalf of any of my current or previous employers!
I’m always interested to hear your feedback and suggestions, so please get in touch if you’ve got things to get off your chest!
In particular, I’m keen to build up links with others working in Central Asian higher education with a view to future collaborations and knowledge exchange.
So, that’s me… for now.
