Phil Sheail is a Lecturer in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh, and teaches on the MSc in Digital Education. Her research interests are interdisciplinary, based in the area of digital and higher education, but drawing on organisational theory, cultural geography, and social theories of time. In recent years, Phil has been developing research with academic libraries and the wider GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) sector. Her most recent research project in this area was Data Bodies in the Library developed in partnership with the University of Edinburgh Library and the National Library of Scotland, with a particular interest in organising practices and the relationship between library technologies and physical space. She is currently developing ethnographic work on crowdsourcing, digital volunteers, and public education. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
