Dr Lucy Power

Former DPhil Student


Lucy has joined the OII in 2007 to study online communities and their impact on society. She also hopes to harness the collective wisdom of the OII faculty and her fellow students to further her knowledge of the wide range of topics studied at the Institute.

Lucy has been fascinated by the Internet since she typed her first html tag back in 1995. Since then she’s coded websites, administered servers, managed large Web projects, and for the last 10 years has worked as an Information Architect, most recently at Ingenta. Her interest in academic study of the Internet was sparked by her work as an IA, talking to users about their information and communication needs, as well as her work on EU projects E-BioSci and ORIEL, which looked at synthesising life science data into an online research environment.

Educated mainly in Australia, Lucy holds an MA in International Relations and a BA in Modern Asian Studies.

Research Interests

E-research, e-science, open science.
