About

I'm the Team Leader for Education and Research Support in the Library - I lead the coordination of our teaching and training activities, specifically those related to information literacy development, and increasingly study skills. A particular professional specialism is raising awareness of plagiarism. I and our team of library staff teach and train undergraduate and postgraduate students throughout Imperial. I am also responsible for developing researcher support services in the areas of research data management and open access advocacy.

Outside work, there's a lot of theatre-going, plus as many dance performances at Sadlers Wells as I can get to. And as many of social circle will attest, I don't like to be in on Friday nights.
