Research Expertise

Description

My research interests cover three, interconnected areas. At the broadest level, I am interest in the practice of humanities research, the underlying processes that comprise it, how it resists and incorporates strategies from other disciplines, such as collaborative, interdisciplinary and applied approaches. My primary focus is however on the impact of technology on humanities research. This interest has both an applied dimension (for example in the infrastructure development projects such as DARIAH, CENDARI, PARTHENOS and eCloud to which I contribute) and a more theoretical dimension, such as in my work around scholarly publishing and communications. Finally, I am interested in the interface between technology and society, in particular the challenges of the digital society and how humanities approaches to knowledge creation can assist us in meeting them.
