I work with researchers in many disciplines to generate new research methods and outcomes, particularly through the codesign of new tools. My projects draw on Web 2.0, Semantic Web, workflow and scripting technologies, often working with large scale distributed systems - from sensor networks to repositories, as well as Grid, HPC and cloud computing. My approach is socio-technical and always promotes community, collaboration and empowerment of the researcher.
