Biographical Information

Neil Chue Hong is the PI and Director of the EPSRC-funded Software Sustainability Institute, a national facility based at the University of Edinburgh for research software users and developers providing specialist software engineering skills to drive the continued improvement and impact of research software.

His current research interests are in community engagement and development, software sustainability, and the integration and analysis of data. He works with research communities across the UK and globally to promote and enable the improvement of important research software through consultative advice; collaborative partnerships; and long-term engagement.

From 2007-2010, he was Director of OMII-UK, based at the University of Southampton, which provides and supports free, open-source software for the UK e-Research community. He has also been the Technical Manager of the JISC-funded NeISS social simulation project, and Project Manager of the JISC-funded ENGAGE initiative, which interviewed 50+ researchers across the UK and commissioned 14 exemplar projects which addressed the current barriers to the use of e-Infrastructure in research domains including chemistry, earth systems modelling, digital humanities, and medicine.

Neil has also worked extensively with Scottish SMEs, primarily on database and image processing projects, in areas as diverse as: fishing net simulators, drilling control software, heart analysis, image archiving, semiconductor probe inspection, genetic expression in mice, and mushroom sorting.

In his limited spare time he oversees the world's oldest purpose built students union, a travelling cinema in a lorry, and facilitates community cinemas across Scotland.
