Since April 2016 I have been Head of Research Data Management Services at UCL. My role involves the development and support of the live data storage service and institutional research data archive. I am also involved in integrating existing services and developing new ones to meet researcher requirements. I was formerly employed as a Senior Project Manager at the University of Oxford IT Services, where I specialized in projects involved in developing research data management infrastructure for the University and had the unofficial role of coordinating the various activities taking place across the support departments of the University. I also provided researchers with advice and training in research data management, data sharing, and technologies for research. I have published a number of articles relating to institutional research data management. My academic background is in 18th-Century English Literature.
