Deputy Director, Software Sustainability Institute.

Co-Director, Southampton Research Software Group.

Simon is Deputy Director of the Software Sustainability Institute, and co-Director of the Southampton Research Software Group.

Simon is responsible for research and campaigning at the Institute. He works with stakeholders from across the research community to develop policies that support research software, the people who develop that software and the researchers who rely on it. Simon's research focusses on the use of software in the research community with the aim of understanding practices and demographics.

Simon is a passionate advocate for Research Software Engineers. He orchestrated a five-year campaign to gain recognition for this group, which has since grown into substantial international community. He was the founding chair of the UK's Association of Research Software Engineers, and is the Principal Investigator of the RSE Network.

Simon is a member of the UKRI expert group on e-Infrastructure. He has a background in patent law, and holds a PhD in laser physics.

Research

Research interests

How software is used in research, emergent roles in modern research groups, research policy and its effect on software.
