About

Background

Neil has worked professionally with interactive media since the early 1990's. His experience ranges across technologies, from interactive video discs, through CD-Roms and the Web, to mobile 'apps', and clients, from The British Library to Getty Images.

His professional career began at a pioneering independent publisher of educational multimedia software and included a period at one of the world's largest information companies, the Thomson Corporation. Neil was appointed as City University London's first lecturer in Electronic Publishing in 1997 and directed their successful Master's in Electronic Publishing until 2004. He now leads a new Erasmus Mundus Master's in Journalism, Media, and Globalisation.

His research focuses on the changes taking place in news production and consumption as a result of the internet. It has been covered by media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, and Le Figaro; and been honoured four times by the International Symposium on Online Journalism in Austin, Texas, where he won 'best paper' in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Neil is a referee for a range of international academic journals, publishers, and research boards; is an external examiner for bachelor and post-graduate degree programmes in journalism; and has lectured around the world including in China, Ukraine, and Korea.
