About

Jonathan Scott holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Southampton. His PhD work involved investigating online news discussions, and using graph algorithms and social network structures to select notable and representative content. See here for a list of publications.

He currently works as a Senior Software Engineer in the Audience Platform Personalisation team of the BBC, where he works primarily with Java, Spring, and Camel to create scalable, stable, web services to deliver personalised recommendations and notifications to audiences.

Jonathan has interests in self-organising community groups, which lead to founding and organising the Southampton Code Dojo and Southampton Game Jam. He also created the open source community management software Happening.

He is interested in working with online news media and discussion systems, and excited by challenges involving social networks or community behaviours. Get in touch.
