My name is Masha Garibyan. I am providing maternity leave cover for Verena Weigert.  I will support Chris Keen, head of library and scholarly futures, and my work will focus on medium and long-term trends and initiatives to help UK libraries and universities remain at the forefront of digital innovation in learning, teaching and research.

I will also take a lead role for Jisc in the international Knowledge Exchange partnership, an international collaboration to improve open scholarship.
