My research focus is on gene environment interactions in human disease.
Ebers and J Knight Groups Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics
DPhil student in Archaeological Science, based at RLAHA.
My current research interests consist of scientific techniques in archaeology, including residue analysis and particularly that of plant resin, the archaeology of Oceania including Australia, and also South-East Asia, and prehistoric technologies and human adaptation across the world.
Though formally retired from Oxford after 30 years at OUCS where I established and ran many projects and services in Humanities Computing, not least the British National Corpus, the Oxford Text Archive, the Text Encoding Initiative and others, I am still active in this area as a consultant. At present, I am providing the French Digital Humanities infrastructure initiative called TGE ADONIS with a service promoting better understanding and take up of standard text encoding techniques. I am also working with a European project called AGORA, coordinated by Manuel Dries.

Professor of e-Research, OERC
I am currently working on an Electronic Database of Poetic Form, which will encode texts currently available on Early English Books Online in order to provide searchable data on form, eg. metre, rhyme scheme, generic title for (initally Renaissance) English poetry. I have a methodology article here http://appositions.blogspot.com/2010/05/ben-burton-elizabeth-scott-bauma... in case you are interested in reading more! I am working on this with a colleague at St Cat's and we have just won initial funding from the John Fell fund and undergone text encoding training in order to begin the pilot phase of the project. I'd be interested in all kinds of discussion about digital research, but perhaps especially its use in the arts, funding opportunities, and sharing wisdom on these.
