Professor Susanna-Assunta Sansone

Associate Professor, Department of Engineering Science; Associate Director, Oxford e-Research Centre.


With creativity, experience and a strong network of other world-leaders, I address the grand challenges related to information science and scholarly communications, where data quality and readiness for (re)use is a prerequisite for success

My group researches and develops methods and tools to improve data reuse; we work for data transparency, research integrity and the evolution of scholarly publishing.

Working with and for researchers, service providers, journal publishers, library science experts, funders and learned societies in the academic as well as in the commercial and governmental setting, I ensure that data is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable for humans as well as for machines. With collaborators worldwide, my group designs and develops open source software, to improve collection, representation, sharing and publication of multi-dimensional data. We also build interoperability standards; we run informative, educational registries to enable data quality and readiness, essential in Data Science.
