Francesca Farmer is a Research Fellow at GLAM-E Lab based at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM). Francesca acts as a bridge between heritage organisations and academia. She is spearheading RAMM’s open access work and more broadly guides heritage organisations’ open access activities developing innovative strategies tailored to each project partner. In working with these organisations, Francesca offers open access advice and creates good practice guidelines based on the questions and concerns identified throughout her work.
Prior to working with GLAM-E Lab, Francesca worked on the UKRI-funded National Research Centre on Privacy, Harm Reduction and Adversarial Influence Online (‘REPHRAIN’). The project explored the decline of third-party cookies in the AdTech sector; charted the emergence of new practices in the AdTech sector in response to such decline. Francesca has an ESRC funded PhD in politics from the University of Exeter. Her thesis was entitled ‘Cybercrime vs Hacktivism: Do we need a differentiated regulatory approach?’ She also has an MA in European Politics and an MRES in Politics from the University of Exeter.
