I have worked in the area of online human behaviour for 15 years, looking into the usability and impact of websites as well as uses of the information that they collect. This has included an investigation into the potential of Twitter to detect disease outbreaks such as Swine Flu that has shown that user activity on twitter can predict an outbreak up to one week faster than traditional methods. This research has received international press coverage e.g. the Telegraph, the Times of India and been presented at a number of international conferences. I am using a similar approach to study hay fever seasons and the use of social media by charities, as well as investigating the use of other Web 2.0 tools and methods such as Social Bookmarking and Learning Analytics to support teaching and learning.

I have previously worked as a Principal Lecturer at the University of Greenwich, a Researcher at City University, London and am a visiting researcher at the eCentre at the University of Greenwich.
