I have 20+ years experience in CS development, research, and research management. I am currently a Lecturer in Information and Knowledge Management with the School of Computing at Newcastle University.
My core expertise is in Information Management, with applications mainly to e-science, and more recently in Data Science.
I joined the School of Computing Science at Newcastle in 2011. read more
My research gravitates around the over-arching notion of Metadata Analytics.
This interest stems from the observation that much insight can be gained not just from data, ie through what is known as Data Science, but from the application of analytics techniques to metadata.
I have articulated my research in this area into the following strands, with applications in multiple application domains.
Abstraction in provenance: I have been PI of the The Trusted Dynamic Coalitions project (£100,000 funding from EPSRC/DSTL), 2012-2013, investigated provenance-based policies for information exchanges amongst partners with limited trust.
I am Principal Investigator of the Cloud e-Genome project (2013-2015), with £200,000 funding over two years from the NIHR/ Newcastle BioMedical Research Council, in collaboration with the Institute of Genetic Medicine at Newcastle University.
The project aims at showing the feasibility of large-scale genomics data processing, namely Next Gen Sequencing data analysis pipeline for whole-exome variant calling and clinical interpretation, for clinical diagnosis using scientific workflow technology on a commercial (Azure) cloud infrastructure.
