I am a New Frontier Fellow, in the Web and Internet Science Group (WAIS), in Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton.  My research is in the area of explainability a facet of algorithmic accountability, provenance, and data ethics.  I am currently working on describing the evolution of open source software engineering projects using provenance, to improve sustainability and reuse.  I have worked on many projects before my fellowship, including StoryPlaces, SOCIAM, SmartSociety, and Live Memories.
