Rachel Pattinson

CDT Manager (Digital Civics)


Roles and Responsibilities

I manage the EPSRC-funded Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Digital Civics and the Digital Economy Research Centre. I work closely with the academic directors and I’m responsible for administration and communications for the CDT, as well as organising training events and summer schools. I also work with Open Lab’s industry and community partners and stakeholders.

Working on Open Lab’s interdisciplinary digital research and innovation projects connects with my broader professional interests in education, arts and culture, libraries and information, charities, and working with children and young people. I am interested in exploring how technology is changing the way we live, and how we can change technology. Follow my work on Twitter or LinkedIn.
