I am a Professor of Digital Humanities, and a member of the Department of Information Studies at University College London. I am Deputy Director of the London Arts and Humanities Partnership, an AHRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnership, and Graduate Tutor for the UCL Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
My research is concerned with the way that digital resources are used in the humanities and cultural heritage; in the use of social media in these areas; and in reading behaviour in physical and digital spaces. I have led, or collaborated on several digital humanities research projects, for example the INKE project and the QRator project. I collaborate widely, especially with researchers in Canada and the USA. Further information about funded research can be found on my research page.
I supervise PhD students at UCLDH working on various topics in digital humanities and social media. My PhD, from Cambridge, was in English Literature, and to find out how I got here from there, please look at the section on career history.
I serve on various advisory boards, for example Digital Manuscripts to Europeana (DM2E), and am a member of the Comite Scientifique du Campus Condorcet . From 2009-2013 I was Vice-Dean for Research for the Faculty of Arts and Humanities; and Director then Co-Director of the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities of which I am still very proud to be a member.
