Cameron Neylon

Advocacy Director (Animal physiology - biophysics; Human biophysics)


I work at PLOS, the Open Access publisher, as Advocacy Director. I am responsible for strategy and development in the areas of Open Access advocacy and the future of scholarly communication more generally. Advocacy Director at PLOS, biophysicist and technology developer. Interested in how the web can serve research.
