I am Professor of Information Systems Management at Newcastle University where I direct the Centre for Knowledge Innovation Technology and Enterprise (KITE) and teach in the Business School. My research interests are in public service innovation and sociotechnical systems: the role that data, information and information systems play in inter-organisational innovation and relationships.
I have over two decades of experience working on and leading public service information system research and development projects. I have lectured widely on collaboration, information sharing and information systems in public service contexts and have taught on a range of UG and PG programmes including Research Methods, Information Systems and Partnership/Collaborative working.

Over the course of my career I have been actively engaged in over fifty research and development projects. The work is based in three overlapping contexts - the integration and information aspects of public services (in particular contexts of health and social care - including children, older people and families); the challenges of information and measurement in local governance (the NHS, VCS/Third sector and local government) and the role of information and information systems in education in particular higher education.
A range of outputs have been produced as a result including journal articles, book chapters and conference papers. The applied nature of much of the work in domains of policy and practice has also generated impact through policy and evaluation reports, workshops, invited presentations, expert advice and manager/practitioner toolkits.
This programme has been influential in policy making and information systems thinking and much of the research is covered in detail in a recent co-authored book Digital Government @ Work (with Ian McLoughlin featuring contributions from Mike Martin) published by Oxford University Press. The book was cited in a recent policy review of Digital Government. A related book on Digital Healthcare, also for Oxford University Press, is in press for 2017.
Aspects of my group's work on Information Systems, Information Sharing and Integration in the public services were submitted as an Impact Statement in the Business and Management unit of assessment for the latest research quality (REF 2014) exercise. Our contributions to information and data sharing debates were also used as part of a review of legislation undertaken by the Law Commission. I currently act as an academic advisor to the Centre of Excellence for Information Sharing and am working with them as part of an ESRC Seminar Series. To see and hear me talking more about my work on information sharing see the Business School Youtube.
Keywords: information sharing; multi-agency and inter-organisational relationships; identity management; public service innovation; social informatics; sociotechnical systems;

Teaching and Learning
The themes of my teaching and learning are drawn from my research interests in the use of data and information in the public, private, third sector and higher education. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and take an action learning approach to teaching by seeking to engage students through their own knowledge and experiences. Over the last decade I have taught Research Methods and Information Systems to both UG and PG students. I have also taught Partnership and Collaborative working on the MBA. My current teaching includes Governing and Managing Public Services (UG elective from 16/17) and the supervision of UG and PG students across a range of management programmes.
In recent years I have been nominated by students for the Vice Chancellor's Teaching Excellence award and the Newcastle University Student Union Teaching Excellence Award (for innovative teaching). My pedagogical research is focused on aspects of the student experience and has been supported by a number of University funded internal consultancy projects, Teaching Innovation awards and Research Scholarships.
I have also designed and led PG programmes and executive education sessions on Leading Change in Healthcare Environments (for a MSc in Healthcare Management), E-governance (on a Masters in Health Informatics), and Partnership Working (part of a suite of CIPD accredited courses). Other sessions include a range of training, conferences and workshops for public, private and third sector organisations on aspects of partnership working/inter-organisational relationships and information sharing/information governance. I currently serve as an External Examiner for the Open University.
In parallel I have a strand of research which focuses on the design, implementation and use of information and information systems in the HE sector. With colleagues (including James Cornford, Paul Richter and Sue Baines) I have been engaged in a range of internal and external consultancy projects (e.g. for Newcastle University on the development of e-portfolios and for JISC on system integration). As well as the impact of the learning from these activities a number of reports and tools are available. Findings have also been presented at a number of national and international conferences on policy and practice in higher education and various papers are being prepared for publication.
