My research over the last few years has focussed on the role of technology in academia. From my first project which surveyed staff at Lancaster University (see publications below) I have been interested in the uptake of new technologies such as e-science and social media and how these tools affect teaching, research and public engagement.
I was recently a SCORE (Support Centre for Open Resources in Education) fellow for 7 months, with a project which examined student practices around scavenging online content. This was informed by my time as an RA at the Open University where I was working on a digital scholarship project with Professor Martin Weller, which was looking at Open Education and Open Scholarship more broadly, see publications.
Currently funded projects include a study of the Chinese social network Weibo and its role in student recruitment, the use of Pinterest in teaching and ethical issues in e-learning research.
