I am a researcher and librarian with a focus on research communication, open knowledge infrastructures and public policy.

I am currently working as Research Fellow, Open Knowledge Systems, School of Media and Communications, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia and as WiR at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society.


From 19 July 2021 I began paid position as Wikimedian in Residence, one day a week, working with researchers and partners at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society. This role will focus on improving content coverage on the research areas of the centre, looking at data and technology collaborations and engaging researchers and partners in Wikimedia projects and platforms.
