I am the Head of the Centre for Digital Scholarship at the Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford. With a background in scholarly editing and book history, I am an advocate for engaging new audiences for multidisciplinary scholarship and library collections using digital methods and technologies. A Senior Researcher at the Oxford e-Research Centre, I act as a point of liaison between the two departments, and work on projects including Fusing Audio and Semantic Technologies for Intelligent Music Production and Consumption and SOCIAM: The Theory and Practice of Social Machines. With Ségolène Tarte, I co-run the multidisciplinary TORCH Critical Visualization network.

Past projects include: Sprint for Shakespeare, a public campaign, and the Bodleian First Folio, which I conceived and ran; Early English Print in the HathiTrust (ElEPHãT), a Linked Semantic Worksets prototyping project;
Early English Books Online Text Creation Partnership, the Shakespeare Quartos Archive; and the Stationers' Register Online.

I serve on the TEI Board of Directors, the steering committees of Cultures of Knowledge, on the Advisory Board for Digital Renaissance Editions, and on the Institute for Historical Research's Library Committee. Co-director of the annual Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School, I also convene its introductory workshop strand.
