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 and key stakeholders to ensure University 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 the professional services to deliver this, particularly:

  • IT Business Partners, who provide provide strategic support to the colleges and professional services directorates;
  • Kate Bradbury, Senior Consultant for Research Support, within the 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 University IT and ARCCA;

as well as other partners inside and outside the University.

I am also the University IT and Library Environmental Compliance Officer, and maintain and develop the University's Sustainability website in partnership with colleagues across the University.
