    Personal profile

    Research interests

    I am Professor of Digital Cultural Heritage in the Department of Digital Humanities. I have particular research focus upon:

    • The value and impact of the digital domain
    • Digitisation and digital cultures
    • Economic, social and cultural informatics
    • Open Access and Open Content
    • Sustainability and economic viability for digital collections in memory institutions such as libraries, archives and museums.

    My areas of research with the strongest international impact are, first, the economic realities and Open Access/Content strategies for digital content in cultural heritage and second, the Balanced Value Impact Model. I have also carried out extensive research in digitisation working with partners in Africa (e.g. Archbishop Desmond Tutu) or projects such as the Dead Sea Scrolls imaging.

    I am interested in PhD supervision which engages with these research themes and have supervised research engaged with digitisation in Africa, democratization, Open Access/Content, digital divides and impact plus memroy, museums and digital imaging.
