My role is to bring the University's research community together with the IT and information services they need to enable their research.

I work with individual researchers; but I also work with key stakeholders at a more strategic level, to ensure INSRV's (Information Services Directorate's) IT services and processes are aligned with the University's research needs, across the University's research portfolio.

I work very closely with colleagues in INSRV and ARCCA to deliver this, particularly:

  • IT Consultancy and Enablement, who provide two-way liaison services to Schools and Divisions;
  • Kate Bradbury, Senior Consultant for Research Support, within INSRV's University Library Service; and
  • ARCCA, to develop client relationships in the use of advanced research computing, and to help to ensure joined-up research enablement between INSRV and ARCCA;

as well as working with other partners inside and outside the University.

I am also INSRV's Eco/Sustainability Champion, and maintain and develop the University's Sustainability website in partnership with colleagues across the University.
