Ming Nie was Research Associate at BDRA at the University of Leicester.

From summer 2013 she is OER evaluator at the University of Northampton - active in OER (such as the TIGER project) but no longer directly involved with the POERUP project.

Dr Nie joined Beyond Distance Research Alliance in July 2006. She first worked as the Research Associate to a Higher Education Academy funded research project called IMPALA (Informal Mobile Podcasting And Learning Adaptation). IMPALA looked into students' learning experiences through Podcasting and how the beneficial effects can be enhanced. She then moved to the POERUP team.

Previously, she was a PhD student at Middlesex University, London, gaining her PhD in March 2006. Her PhD research looks into the impact of culture on Distance Learning, which investigates how students from different cultural backgrounds learn differently through a distance learning programme delivered by a UK university.

Dr Nie was originally from Beijing, China. Before she came to the UK, she worked as a customer service engineer for an IT company in Shenzhen, China for several years. She gained her first degree in Science from Beijing Polytechnic University in 1994
