Biography

Currently Meik works at TH Köln (Technische Hochschule Köln - University of Applied Sciences, Cologne, Germany) as Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter at ‘Forschungsschwerpunkt DiTeS - Digitale Technologien und Soziale Dienste’ (Research Associate at Research Centre DiTeS - Digital Technologies and Social Services), since February 2016.

Meik until 31 October 2013 worked as Research Associate at The University of Manchester (UoM) with the Manchester eResearch Centre (MeRC - at the time under www.merc.ac.uk) since the centre's launch in October 2009, following its transition from the National Centre for e-Social Science Hub (NCeSS - at the time under www.ncess.ac.uk) where he worked as a researcher between January 2007 and September 2009. A social scientist by education, he has been working interdisciplinary since 1998, focussing on the fields of applied research of socio-technical systems, user & community engagement, evaluation, qualitative and mixed research methods, CSCW, Participatory Design, organisational analysis and Network/Virtual Organisations at the Fraunhofer Institute FIT and in the EU project InKoNetz at the University of Bonn. He graduated from the University of Bonn (Germany) with an M.A. (Magister Artium) in Sociology, Communication Science & Phonetics and Educational Science. In February 2006 he became a certified project manager.

His research interests and activities encompass adoption, use and evaluation of socio-technical systems and e-Infrastructures (i.e. new ICT, such as collaborative systems, Research Data Management Infrastructures, VRE, the Grid, and the scientific use of Web 2.0 & the Cloud) especially in research and higher education - and also eminently their emergence in traditionally more 'non-technical' disciplines like social sciences, arts and humanities - as well as broadly looking into e-Research (e-Science; e-Social Science) endeavours and their development & impact worldwide.

At NCeSS in 2007 he conducted the first phase of the user-centered summative evaluation of a repository/data archive prototype system in the JISC/CURL-funded StORe project (see phase one final report) and worked in the EU project AVROSS, exploring the uptake of e-infrastructure especially in social sciences and humanities (see AVROSS final report). Further he was looking into researchers' efforts in using, building and mapping ontologies and related tools in different domains. In 2008 he completed the second phase of the StORe/UKDA-store evaluation (see phase two final report) and in 2009 the two-year JISC funded VRE phase 2 project CREW, being responsible for evaluation and eliciting user requirements and needs in the development of a web-based VRE making use of Access Grid tools to support collaborative research events (see JISCmedia video of CREW on YouTube). From November 2008 until July 2009 he was a researcher in the JISC e-Infrastructure programme Community Engagement and Support project eIUS (see website for outputs and final report). Furthermore he was involved in researching use as well as community building, development and management processes of the myExperiment VRE project since October 2007.

At MeRC he was part of the research team exploring "Use and Relevance of WEB 2.0 Resources for Researchers" in a Research Information Network (RIN) funded study (see website for overview and final report). Between April 2009 and March 2011 he was a Co-PI on the OneVRE project (JISC VRE3 programme) looking into application areas, user requirements and evaluation (OneVRE final report). From 2009 to 2012 he was acting as researcher and user engagement, outreach, requirements gathering and evaluation expert in the JISC Information Environment programme funded three year National e-Infrastructure for Social Simulation (NeISS) project, as well as in a related six month Digital Social Research (DSR) funded project on developing and running a social simulation pilot module for training (3S DSR project). [On NeISS see also the Software Sustainability Institute's (SSI) Case Study on 'Achieving unexpected goals from an ambitious social science project'.] Between September 2012 and February 2013 he was working on a JISC 'Digital infrastructure: Research programme' commissioned VRE Synthesis study of the JISC VRE programme with Rob Procter at MeRC, Rowan Wilson (and previously also Sander van der Waal) at OSS Watch and Ross Gardler at OpenDirective.

Research Data Management (RDM): Having been researcher, user liaison and user requirements & evaluation lead in the MaDAM (Manchester Data Acquisition & Management) project (JISC Managing Research Data programme) at University of Manchester between October 2009 and June 2011, he was reprising these roles in the 21 month successor project MiSS (MaDAM into Sustainable Service) since October 2011. See here for a more detailed account of user engagement, outreach and training activities in MiSS.

Based on MaDAM, MiSS and UoM initiatives the UoM RDM Service is running in a phased approach, starting with providing support and raising awareness from February 2013. The RDM Service & Guidance Website can be found here: http://www.manchester.ac.uk/researchdata/

Jisc: From December 2011 to July 2013 Meik was one of three 'Evidence Gatherers' in the second phase of the JISC Managing Research Data Programme (JISCMRD02), together with Laura Molloy (HATII, University of Glasgow) and Jonathan Tedds (University of Leicester), liaising closely with Simon Hodson, the Programme Manager (Programme Manager's Blog). The aim of these newly introduced roles was to foster collaboration and knowledge exchange between the projects in the programme while identifying and disseminating themes, developments, trends and impact. The Evidence Gatherers and the JISCMRD Programme & Projects made lively use of blogs and Twitter (#JISCMRD).
