With a background in digital humanities and history I have a strong interest and expertise in digital technology, innovation and information management, in particular in education and research.
Over the past few years as a Programme Manager at the government sponsored charity Jisc, the UK's expert on digital technologies for education and research, I have focussed on digital infrastructure, tools and methods for research but also related policy issues and areas such as software and innovation. I am currently managing the Open Access activities at Imperial College London.
