Lecturer in England, United Kingdom
I am a Digital Society Fellow, supported by Wellcome and a UK based Lecturer in Science Communication and Future Media.
My practice based research is focused at the intersection of social, digital and environmental movements, and involves publics in re-imagining the future through immersive learning experiences.These experiments are covered by The Guardian, New York Times, Daily Mail, Lancet and Al-Jazheera.
Trained originally as a neuroscientist, I pursued an interest in art-science practices through digital filmmaking on a NESTA fellowship. As EAVE trained producer, I made films and installations at B3 Media.
With Creative Partnerships, I nurtured creative science inquiry in schools, mentoring artists and teachers to collaborate across disciplines. Within higher education, museums and NGOs, I devise, lead or mentor on culture change initiatives, Manchester Beacon, Engage, Catalyst, Turing's Sunflowers and Creative Scene.
Funded by Wellcome, I curate DocFest Exchange, a public platform of themed talks, events and alternate reality exhibits at Sheffield International Documentary Festival.
