Digital Asset Management MA

I am the Director of King’s Digital Consultancy in the Department of Digital Humanities. I therefore spend a lot of time working with the creative, cultural and heritage industries on delivering and managing digital content and assets. I have been at King’s since 2003 and before that held consultancy, management and technology jobs in industry and libraries. I founded the Digital Futures Academy for practitioners and I have delivered and/or consulted on over 500 digitisation or digital asset projects. I have worked with major creative and cultural organisations in Europe, America, Africa and Australia. A couple of examples include designing the digitisation for the Dead Sea Scrolls, consultancy and strategy for The British Library, Israel National Library, the Tate, the Danish Government and the UK Parliamentary Archives.

This practical experience and our industry contacts are integral to the teaching of the MA in Digital Asset Management. There are many opportunities for students to get exciting internships or to meet with interesting figures from the DAM community because of our strong links there. My research interests add to this practical background. My core research interests relate to value, return on investment, measuring and evaluating impact, digitisation, digital imaging, OCR, the economics of the digital domain and digital sustainability.

I teach the MA DAM Core Course with Professor Sheila Anderson. I also lead the optional module, Management for Digital Content Industries. Both these are augmented with guest lectures from industry experts (including past students). I find teaching these courses very exciting and the sharing that students do from within their own experience can be inspiring. As such, MA DAM offers a number of opportunities, including excellent employability rates, that other courses cannot offer and I am proud to be part of the team.
