I’m responsible for: Technology. As the Altmetric CTO, I’m accountable for maximising our technology capabilities. I work with our teams to identify how we can leverage our use of technology for the benefit of our customers and then I ensure that we have the right skills, knowledge and tools to maximise our impact.
In an average day I: I am constantly looking for ways to remove barriers and enhance the value we give to our customers, this is something that touches all of the work I do.
The best part of my job is: Our people, without question. Altmetric and Digital Science are filled with interesting, caring, industry leading and diverse people and its a privilege to get to interact with many of them in my role.
The most interesting thing I’ve learnt since starting at Altmetric is: Within the Altmetric Top 100 (which was published within days of me starting), at #55 is a chemist/mathematician/coffee professional collaboration to systematically improve espresso, an audacious goal.
The thing I’m most looking forward to next is: Working with our Altmetric teams to define the technology roadmap and looking back at this page in a couple of months to see which of my thoughts have changed and which remain.
