As learning, education and research change, SAGE Publishing is constantly on the lookout for new ways in which we can support the scholarly community. Today, in an age of big data and new technologies, researchers within the social sciences have opportunities to analyze information in ways that were previously thought impossible. Yet this has also posed challenges as not everyone is equipped with the skills or knowledge to be able to use this data in the most effective way.
This is where the SAGE Campus team comes in: earlier this year, we launched a series of online courses to teach data science skills to social sciences. From the initial idea to commissioning the courses, building the platform, and telling the world about SAGE Campus, our team is made up of a variety of different individuals with a variety of different skills and backgrounds, but what is most important to us is creatively and a passion for what we do. My name is Katie Metzler, Head of Methods Innovation at SAGE, and I’m delighted to be able to introduce you to the team.
Ian Mulvany is the sensei of product innovation at SAGE and is obsessed with how we can use technology to tame the big data beast and improve the research process.
Before joining creative forces with SAGE Campus, Ian was *takes a deep breath* head of technology at eLife, head of product at Mendeley, and product manager for a number of Nature Publishing Group’s online services for researchers.
