I am the publisher for Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at F1000, an Open Research publisher. Prior to working at F1000, I had several roles at the Open Access publisher, Frontiers. I have a PhD in modern Irish history and continue to research and publish in that area. I am interested in open research and publishing, contemporary politics and a variety of technology-related issues such as surveillance capitalism, digital equity, technology-critical elements.
