She was commissioned to lead a working party to produce the recent British Psychological Society (BPS) guidelines on ethics in Internet-mediated research (2013), has delivered a number of talks and training sessions on this and related topics, and has published more broadly in the area of IMR Education: B.A. and M.A. from Southeastern Louisiana University; Ph.D. from the University of Mississippi.

Carl Vogel, a Fellow of Trinity College Dublin, is Senior Lecturer in Computational Linguistics and Director of the Centre for Computing and Language Studies at Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin. His work in computational linguistics as a cognitive science frequently draws upon evidence abstracted from Internet accessed data, and accordingly he dwells on the accompanying research methodology issues. Vogel was on the Management Committee of the successful European COST Action IS1004: Web-based data-collection -- methodological challenges, solutions and implementations (WEBDATANET).
