Profile

I am a senior lecturer in the Department of Information Science at Loughborough University. My research has been focused on the disciplinary shaping of scholarly communication and digital scholarship. I recently led the PEER funded Behavioural Research project investigating the perceptions, motivations and behaviours of authors and users in relation to open access repositories. Other recent relevant research activities include being a co-investigator on a Research Information Network (RIN) funded project investigating the publication and dissemination behaviour of researchers and also on a JISC funded project measuring the benefits of open access to publicly funded research data in the UK.

I received my Ph.D. in Information Science in 2003 from the University of Brighton and since then have held postdoctoral research fellowships at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, Amsterdam, and in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel-Hill. Before joining the Department of Information Science I was a research fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute.
