Location: Blackpool, Lancashire, UK
I graduated with a BSc (Hons) Computing and Information Systems in 2003 from Lancaster University and went on to an MSc in Computing and Information systems at John Moores University graduating in 2006. I have worked as a lecturer/senior lecturer at Edge Hill University since 2005. Before joining Edge Hill I worked as a SAP web portals consultant and before that as an Electrical engineer.
I continue to work as a senior lecturer/director of employability for the Computer Science department whilst undertaking my PhD part time at Sheffield University.
Supporting information access in digital cultural heritage
In this PhD I hope to identify and understand the user groups of digital cultural heritage including their preferences for seeking information and establishing a generous interface that enables all user groups to effectively seek DCH information.
Information seeking, information retrieval, human computer interaction and user experience design.
