I'm the Head of Scholarly Communications Management in the Library - I lead the development researcher and education support services and activities we deliver for researchers and students across the College . This includes open access, research data management and information literacy teaching, including plagiarism awareness and study skills support.

Outside work, there's a lot of theatre-going, plus as many dance performances at Sadlers Wells as I can get to. Knitting is recently re-discovered creative passion.
