At Research IT we know how busy researchers are, and how talking face to face can be the easiest way to communicate a problem or complex research idea. That’s why every other Wednesday in term-time we host drop-in sessions across campus so you can talk to our experts in person about anything research computing related.

Zoom - Online Session
23 Jun 2021 2 p.m. — 3 p.m.

How we can help

We can help you with your Research IT related needs but unfortunately we cannot assist with general IT queries. For example our services encompass:

  • Advice on all Research IT Services
  • Help and support with research applications
  • Programming/Coding
  • Specialist areas such as mobile development, visualization and VR/AR

However, we are unable to help with email, VPN or MS-Office issues etc.

How we've helped before

At recent drop-in’s we’ve had inquiries about:

  • Creating a workflow for putting point cloud data into VR
  • Using machine learning as a way to identify skin issues
  • Scraping user reviews from IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes and Allo Ciné
  • And how to interview research participants over Skype in a different country whilst complying with the University’s data protection policy
