I am a Professor of Digital Humanities, and a member of the Department of Information Studies at University College London. I am Deputy Director and Head of Training 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.
