I am a designer and technologist who works in software and hardware to explore the impact of emerging technologies in everyday lives. I am a PhD student in the Department of Design at Goldsmiths - University of London, a Visiting Researcher at Newcastle University's Open Lab and I have my own design practice. Previously I was a Senior Researcher at BT's Broadband Applications Research Centre.
I have Master's degree in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art (2012) and a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the University of Birmingham (2000).
I have published papers and filed patents in the fields of HCI, psychology, tangible interfaces, computer vision and computer graphics. My portfolio has many examples of my projects.
