I'm a medical student who is also interested in research and scientific publishing.
Although my legal name is Asian, I go by an English name with peers and supervisors (which is not on my degrees/official school records). In the future, I will have to use just my Asian first name when I practice medicine (but this won't matter because I will just be Dr.LastName anyways).
I'm just wondering what I should be publishing under - I found that a lot of people on pubmed/GScholar share my Asian name...and with my supervisors I am known by EnglishName-AsianName LastName.
Will publishing under this hyphenated name pose future problems if I practice just under AsianName?
I'm thinking problems such as not being recognized in research communities, hospital affiliations with research-based hospitals, etc.
