I'm a senior co-design manager working in the research team in digital futures, with an emphasis on research data management, research information, research software and work that supports researchers throughout the whole research lifecycle.
I'm currently managing the research data discovery service project, coordinating the work of the team and working with universities and data centres to ensure the system meets its objectives through phases two and three of the project.
In cooperation with the Research Data Alliance (RDA), I'm supporting UK researchers, developers and infrastructure providers to further UK research interests and helping to build RDA engagement and general collaboration and communication within the UK research community.
I am currently leading the Next Generation Research Environment co-design challenge. I also keep a watching brief on developments with organisational identifiers, and persistent identifiers, to ensure Jisc is positioned correctly with national and international developments.
Prior to Jisc I worked for OMII-UK at the University of Southampton as user community liaison team leader.
Before working in higher education I had extensive experience in ITC including requirements gathering, software/database development, team leading and project management in the commercial sector.
