Manager and technical lead for two key teams at Mendeley:

  • The Catalogue team, which produces a crowd-sourced catalogue of all publications uploaded into Mendeley, by means of clustering and classification jobs written and maintained by the Catalogue team in Scala and Spark, and run on EMR. I provide technical leadership for the team, make high-level architectural decisions, and direct and manage the workload. I am also responsible for hiring and for line management.

  • The Core Reference Management (CRM) team. The CRM team develops and maintains RESTful web services to control uploading/downloading of files, synchronisation across multiple devices, search of user documents, and annotating PDFs. I am responsible for setting the team direction, managing the workload, providing technical oversight, line managing the team members, and hiring for new roles and vacancies.
