My SlideShare profile


I’m a senior co-design manager working in the digital resources directorate.

I manage and support a number of projects related to research data, research information, research analytics, research tools, open research, standards and work that supports researchers throughout the whole research lifecycle.

I actively support the work of international organisations, such as the Research Data Alliance (including the RDA UK node), engage with international groups and projects, and keep a watching brief on developments with persistent identifiers and research notebooks to ensure Jisc is positioned correctly with national and international developments.


My work at Jisc has always been focussed on research and I was previously programme manager for the access and identity management (AIM), virtual research environments (VRE) and research tools programmes. 

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.
