- Formal training, i.e., schools attended and degrees awarded, names of people with whom your subject studied (if available), etc.;
- Professional and academic positions held;
- Recent professional activities such as conference presentations and publications;
- Frequent collaborators for conference presentations and publications;
- A photo would be nice to help us keep in mind that we are talking about a specific, yet “whole,” person though we are focused on their professional development and accomplishments;
- Any other information you find compelling.
Much of this information would be included in a CV (curriculum vitae—a résumé for academics) if you are able to locate one for your subject.
