Research interests

I am interested in the intersection of web technologies with research practice and the potential of the web to increase the efficiency with which we do research. I also work on the development and application of new techniques in structural biology with a


Cameron did his undergraduate studies in Biochemistry at the University of Western Australia. From 1995-99 he did a PhD focussing on protein-DNA binding and the development of large scale protein screening techniques before moving to do a postdoc in the Chemistry Department at the University of Bath in 1999. In 2001 he took up a position as Lecturer in Combinatorial Chemistry at the University of Southampton where he was involved in the 4G Basic Technology Grant and the development of a range of laboratory recording technologies. In 2005 he moved to the Science and Technology Facilities Council Rutherford Appleton Laboratory as Senior Scientist for Biomolecular Sciences at the ISIS neutron scattering facility. He writes online at Science in the Open and is a regular speaker on issues of scholarly communication and web technologies for science.
