I work in many aspects of Knowledge Mobilisation, including the use of social media to track research uptake, managing knowledge programmes, supporting innovation, producing how-to guides and developing elearning programmes.

I recently developed TwitterWeave, a free web app designed to help researchers track how Twitter users engage with their research. My background is in NGO campaigning, multimedia software design and e-learning software.

Before joining IDS I worked as an ergonomist, a research fellow in the Open University Institute of Educational Technology, a Campaigns Officer for Oxfam, and Technology Officer and Trainer for OneWorld.Net.

I have a PhD in Human-Computer Interface Design.
