Roles and Responsibilities
I help clients to design social and collaboration initiatives that empower individuals to connect, collaborate and work together more effectively; to develop business social networking roadmaps; and to select social technologies that best fit their needs. Before Gartner I was a founding member of a pioneering Web development company responsible for high-profile European interactive and transactional online services. Previously, as a postdoctoral research fellow, I worked on visual programming languages, artificial intelligence and Web technology, where I led the development of one of the first open-source Web publishing systems.
