Currently I am the Head of Research Services at the British Library and a member of the Library’s Strategic Leadership Team. Working with colleagues across the organisation and the research sector I am developing the Library's response to the on-going change in the way scholarly information is generated, used and communicated. I am the Library's strategic expert for scholarly communications (open access, research data, alternative publishing models).

Before joining the Library, I was the Scholarly Communications Officer at Imperial College London, where I shaped and implemented the university’s strategy in areas like open access and research data management. Previously, I was a Programme Manager at Jisc (a UK charity delivering digital services for education and research), where I specialised in digital research infrastructure.

My background is in e-research and digital humanities,. Past employers and clients include: King's College London, the Bavarian State Library, the University of Munich and a large software company.
