I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London. I am researching open-access publishing and the humanities, focusing on the practical and theoretical foundations for cooperative, scholar-led and commons-based approaches to publishing that are embedded in a range of humanistic research practices. I am also an advocate of scholarly openness in general and was a 2013-4 Panton Fellow in Open Data at the Open Knowledge Foundation.
