Lecturer and Media Maker in Manchester, United Kingdom
I’m a Lecturer in Science Communication and Future Media at Salford University in The School of Environment & Life Sciences.
I create mixed reality experiments to raise consciousness of social and environmental challenges. I am specifically interested in the role of emerging digital technologies in shaping perception, learning and memory.
Trained originally as a neuroscientist at Manchester University with Professor Nancy Rothwell, I took up a sci-art NESTA fellowship to communicate science through scriptwriting and digital media. Fortune, featured at Theatre by the Lake and film commissions include In Memoriam and Interloper. I also executive produced 24 short films shot digitally for B3 Media.
Nature's Switch, my most recent film made with visual artist, Caroline Ward won a best film award at Danny Boyle's Shuffle Festival.
