About

I am currently a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computing and Mathematics at University of Greenwich. I have worked in the area of online human behaviour for 7 years, looking into the usability and impact of websites as well as uses of the information that they collect. This has recently included an investigation into the potential of Twitter to detect disease outbreaks such as Swine Flu, along with colleagues at CeRC. I am using a similar approach to study the impact of the 2012 Olympic Games as well as investigating the use of other Web 2.0 tools such as Social Bookmarking to support e-Learning. I have previously worked as a Researcher at City University, London and am a visiting researcher at the Knowledge Modelling Research Group in the School of Computing and Mathematics at Keele University.
