University of Cambridge
United Kingdom
I took up the position of Head of Scholarly Communication at the University of Cambridge in January 2015, overseeing all aspects of scholarly communication at the University, including compliance with funder open access policies, research data management, intellectual property, staff development, copyright and other areas. I also hold a Visiting Fellowship at the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science. My research centres on scholarly communication with a specific interest in open access advocacy. I also sit on the Australian Academy of Sciences National Committee for Data in Science. My previous role was the Executive Officer of the Australian Open Access Support Group which aims to inform the discussions around open access at a time of great change in this area. My previous role was Manager, Scholarly Communication and ePublishing at the Australian National University where I was responsible for developing policies relating to scholarly communication and open access, and rebuilt the DSpace repository prior to its July 2011 relaunch. I also worked as an Associate Lecturer (part-time) in science communication. I completed my PhD at ANU in 2008 - looking at the barriers to opening up access to scholarly publications.
