Noy has been a research assistant at the Complexity Science Hub since December 2023. She studies the influence of gender bias on the visibility of women scholars, their access to information, and its impact on scientific progress. In her research, she analyzes scholarly citation and collaboration networks and uses simulations to uncover the underlying mechanisms of gender bias in scholarly works.
Noy’s interest in gender bias is both intellectual and personal. As a Jewish Kurdish woman growing up in Iran, she has firsthand knowledge of the multifaceted obstacles that minorities, especially women, encounter within society. These obstacles have shaped her scientific identity and her personal perspective.
Through her studies in the research group ‘Network Inequality,’ led by Fariba Karimi, she aims to broaden our understanding of how network structure can maintain biases against minorities and to find new strategies to mitigate these biases and their impact.
