I joined ScHARR in 2001 as an Information Assistant within the Information Resources team based in ScHARR Library. Since qualifying as an Information Professional my role is to provide help through the development and support of electronic information services, in particular Web 2.0 and social software technologies to aid the research of those working and studying at ScHARR and within the Medical Faculty.
My main areas of work are in Web 2.0, Social Media, Google Apps, Altmetrics, Infographics, and the Web.
I co run ScHARR's Bite Size series - where we teach you something new in 20 minutes. I also run the popular ScHARR Library Blog.
My research interests are focused in the area of modern Web tools, Web 2.0, social networks and software and their application for research, teaching, learning, knowledge management and transfer and collaboration.
My teaching interests lie in encouraging staff and students to use the many tools and technologies, quite often freely, available to aid them carry out research and collaboration within the academic and clinical setting. I teach on the IRISS programme and guest on the MSc Health Informatics programme.
I am the Secretary for the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals - Multi Media and Information Technology Committee. I am also a Mendeley Advisor for the social reference management software company.
