I am an Associate Professor in the School of Arts and Creative Industries at Edinburgh Napier University. I run the taught postgraduate provision in the area of design and am a researcher in the Centre for Creative Practice.
My research centres on digital technology and the arts, both as a medium within creative practice and as a tool for engaging with arts collections. My work centres around Digital Storytelling and Physical Computing and where these two subjects meet. I am particularly interested in the boundary between the real and the virtual.
I work with an international team on the notion of Blended Experience, a framework for designing experiences that work sympathetically between the physical and the digital.
I make working interactive products that help expose our relationship with technology. I also work with organisations creating bespoke interactive experiences.
