I am the current Chair and Secretary of ISKO UK
I have recently retired from Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, where I taught and researched on Knowledge Organization. I am also a member of the UDC (Universal Decimal Classification) editorial team. Apart from teaching and research activities, I have been involved in various aspects of information management in the oil and gas industry and at the Aberdeen Harbour Board via the delivery of taxonomy workshops and cross-industry forums.
I am now committed to promoting Knowledge Organization education, particular for information workers who have not benefited from a formal education in ILS and IM.
ISKO UK is in an enviable position globally thanks to the hard work of members who have contributed to very successful online events which attracted a wide audience concerned with the organisation of information. I will endeavour to promote sound governance practices to allow past, current and future contributors to deploy their talents and ideas in a stable environment.
I live in Scotland with my large extended family.
As a long time member of ISKO and one of the founding members of the UK Chapter, I am currently serving as Vice-Chair and Event Coordinator. Apart from my roles in our Chapter I am also Vice Chair of the ISKO Scientific and Technical Advisory Council (ISKO STAC), and a member of ISKO's Editorial Board of the Knowledge Organization journal. In 2019, I helped establish the Low Countries Chapter of ISKO and I continue to collaborate between our Chapters in event organization and promotion of knowledge organization in professional and academic communities.
My main job is editor-in-chief of the Universal Decimal Classification at the UDC Consortium (The Hague, Netherlands). I am also an adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Information and Communication Sciences at the University of Zagreb, Croatia where I occasionally participate as a lecturer of postgraduate courses in indexing languages, knowledge organization and information retrieval (my webpage).
