I am Research Librarian (job-share with Susan Glen), working Wed-Fri. Our blog is at: http://researchnews.wordpress.com. We work within the Library Research Support Team providing training and support with open access, bibliometrics, research profiles and scholarly communications. We also co-ordinate the library training programme for research students. 

I completed a PhD in Egyptology at Swansea University in 1996 and I became a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2017.
