I did my undergrad at Southampton. Worked with Les Carr on my final project and ended up as a research assistent after I graduated. I worked for a variety of people including David Millard and Les Carr. I have developed the EdShare plugin suite for EPrints. I am responsible for 4500 (jul 2010)open educational resources and growing across the various EdShare installations which I manage . These resource are spread across edshare.soton.ac.uk, humbox.ac.uk, loro.open.ac.uk, wlbr.worc.ac.uk and languagebox.ac.uk. Im also interested in other developments I can add to EPrints including research data management, readinglist managerment and linked data functionality. I have done a number of projects with Hugh Glaser and Ian Millard designing and building tools for creating and curating linked data sets. I worked on the dotac.info co-reference editor and generic parsing tool for converting high volume xml structures into RDF and other linked data formats. More recently I have started working on panfeed.ecs.soton.ac.uk havesting news to create Personalised Academic News Feeds.
