I am a senior co-design manager within the research team at Jisc. This means that I work within the exploratory side of Jisc, as opposed to the service delivery.
The team generates or identifies ideas for useful tools and services that would simplify the jobs of researchers, research support officers, librarians and IT departments. We’re currently focussed on all aspects of research data management.
My role covers a range of activities around product and service development.
Previously I worked in the Jisc subject specialist team where I was responsible for advising and guiding customers about their research data management processes.
Before that I worked at Jisc Netskills and jointly managed the Jisc business and community engagement (BCE) team, and was a Jisc programme manager from 2000-2002, responsible for the 57 projects of the teaching and learning programme.
I have directed my own project management and research consultancy, CSI Consultancy Ltd, since April 2003. As a consultant, I’ve been involved in many projects, both for Jisc, other funders and education providers, on using innovative ICT within higher and further education.
Prior to working in and around Jisc, I worked for the Research Councils in various capacities, as a portfolio and programme manager. This followed PhD research in palaeo-climate processes in the southern North Sea.
