About

A former high-energy physicist, I now work with Elsevier as Director of Research Communities. That means that I work together with various research communities to learn how we can better support discussion, interaction, and collaboration on Mendeley. Before that I was responsible for Elsevier's Content Innovation program, which aims to bring the scientific article into the 21st century, embracing new forms of research output such as research data, computer codes, and multimedia.
