I am a PhD student in the Division of Media Technology and Interaction Design at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, with Rob Comber and Elina Eriksson as supervisors, and I am in the Sustainable Futures Lab team.
My work focuses on sound, interaction design, and sustainability. In my PhD I am looking at constraints-based design, generally focusing on critical approaches to technological interactions for sound and media.
Previously I was Game Designer in Residence at MICA Game Lab in Baltimore, USA for two years. Prior to that I lived for 13 years in Scotland, where I was founder of award-winning creative studio Lucky Frame and lecturer at the University of Abertay Dundee. I worked as a freelance artist and musician, with much of my work involving building custom instruments such as sound-responsive robots, musical pigsties, candle-based sound installations, electromechanical mushroom spore reactors, and more.
