    Biographical details

    Mark is the Director of the Centre for e-Research, and a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Digital Humanities, teaching on a variety of modules in the MA in Digital Asset Management. His original academic background was in mathematics and philosophy, and he gained a Ph.D. in mathematics at University College London, before starting a 17-year career in the software and systems consultancy industry, working on large-scale development projects for industrial and commercial clients.

    Research interests

    Mark’s research interests include digital libraries and archives, their role in research and scholarly publishing, and their relationships with broader research environments and research infrastructures. He is interested in understanding research practices in the humanities, including researcher (and other user) behaviour in archives, and investigating how such practices can be supported or enhanced by digital methods, including the use of “citizen science” or “community-sourcing” methods. A particular interest is the application of computational methods for organising, integrating and analysing unstructured and semi-structured information, and the issues of interpretation this raises.
