Past and present clients include the Khalili Collections, University of Oxford GLAM Division, the Voltaire Foundation, Jisc, Coventry University (for Wikipedia/Wikidata/Wikisource training), University of Gloucestershire (for social media training), and BBC Research & Development (for decision theory expertise).
I am a certified Lead Trainer for Wikimedia UK. As a volunteer, I have delivered training and other events for the Institute of Physics, the British Psychological Society, the National Institute for Medical Research, the University of Leicester, the University of Edinburgh, and others.
My Wikimedia UK profile lists wiki training events I have participated in.
I was educated at the University of Oxford (BA Philosophy and Psychology) and the University of Bristol (PhD Philosophy).
My doctoral thesis, Value and Belief, applied decision theory to issues of rational and irrational belief.
