I am currently a Professor of Digital Living at Northumbria University, but until 2016 worked as a Reader in Cultural Computing, in Open Lab, at Newcastle University.I study Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and the design of interactive computational technologies.
I have previously held positions as Senior Lecturer of Experience-Centred Design in Newcastle, Lecturer in Human-Computer Interaction in the Mixed Reality Lab and School of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham, and as a post-doc in the Socio-Digital Systems group at Microsoft Research Cambridge.
Accordingly, and although trained as an experimental scientist, my research is increasingly based on qualitative methods and design-research practices.
I'm interested in a variety of broad research areas in HCI including (but not limited to): Memory and Data - this has been a large focus for much of my research.
This boisterous start set the tone for three workshops put together by Passionate/Bulkboek.
The Flemish writer and performance artist Rebecca Lenaerts took charge of the large group of beginners to put together a contemporary interpretation of The legend of Godiva.
