Short Bio

I currently manage the Research Bazaar training program at the University of Melbourne, which teaches digital skills and tools to researchers at all stages of their careers. My background is in Ancient History (PhD on the Roman conquest of Italy) so capacity-building in Digital Humanities is a particular interest of mine. I'm also currently one of the VicNode representatives on a RDS funded project to help HASS researchers use the national research data storage infrastructure. I'm hoping to use this project to also increase discoverability of HASS data through Trove and HuNI.
I am co-chair of Open Knowledge Australia, and would like to use this role to support Open GLAM in Australia.
