I enjoy my role in helping students learn about topics related to data and information management at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Currently I coordinate modules in the Information School on the topics of Information Retrieval and Information Systems in Healthcare. I am also developing the new MSc Data Science programme that will launch 2014 and for which I will be overall coordinator. In 2010 I became coordinator of the Information Retrieval module and revised its content and methods of assessment. Martin White (Intranet Focus and visiting Professor in the Information School) mentioned the module in his O’Reilly book on Enterprise Search as an example of the type of training teams supporting enterprise search should receive. I also deliver lecturers on several other courses in the Information School, including Database Design, Digital Multimedia and Business Intelligence. I have been invited as guest lecturer on several occasions to external organisations, including the 2013 European Summer School in Information Retrieval, the TrebleCLEF cross language search summer school in Pisa in 2009 and Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia in 2008. In 2008 I completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCHE) and since 2010 have been a Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy.
