Her team runs Europe PMC - the open access database of abstracts and full-text articles for the life sciences, which supports the open access policies of 29 international funders of life sciences research.

Prior to joining EMBL-EBI, Jo was a staff scientist at the NCBI, National Library of Medicine, NIH, USA, where she worked on various literature-related resources and website usability, and was the Editor at Trends in Biochemical Sciences (TiBS), Elsevier. Jo’s primary focus has been on the integration of the open access literature with life sciences data, to support the development of new ways to access and discover research information. This has led to interests in the areas of text and data mining, curation, and scientific credit and impact systems.  She holds a PhD in plant biology from Manchester Metropolitan University.
