I have been chief executive of Jisc since mid-October 2015. 

In January 2016, I was listed in The Sunday Times list of Britain's 500 most influential in the area of engineering and technology.

I have also worked in knowledge-based IT companies including Thomson Reuters Legal UK and the Intellectual Property Office.
