I am Lecturer in Science & Technology Studies and Turing Inaugural Fellow at the University of Edinburgh. My research empirically focuses on ICT markets with a focus on the relationship between technology and expertise. While on secondment at Alan Turing Institute in London, I contributed to establish the Institute’s research agenda in social data science. Since my return to Edinburgh, I have been leading an inter-disciplinary research team of social scientists, statisticians and computer scientists to develop research using professional networking data to analyse professional careers in the IT sector. Here is the project's micro-site. I also coordinate the social science input to the Edinburgh Data Science virtual campus. Previously, I have been visiting research fellow at Ecole des Mines in Paris and post-doc fellow at University of Trento (Italy), where I have also been consultant for the government’s digital agenda.

Topics interested in supervising
I am currently interested in supervising postgraduate students wanting to undertake ethnographic studies of 'data science' applications, qualitatively analysing the full data life-cycle from production, to analysis, consumption, data presentation and related controversies. I am open to consider PhDs wanting to address this topic with empirical cases from different fields, from marketing to policy making to performance measurement including sport. See video below for more information on my research on big data and sport:
