After graduating from Aberystwyth with an MSc in Library Studies, I spent a number of years working in development projects around the use of ICT in library contexts, funded by EC, JISC and others. I completed my PhD at Loughborough in 2006. The topic was knowledge sharing among web management professionals, on and off line, informed by notions both around communities of practice and theories of professionalisation. I have continued an interest in online community/social media and professional identity in later work.
