My main area of expertise is in within Interactive Design. I module lead Interactive Design, Graphic Design for Digital Media, Distribution Methods and Practices and Integrated Projects Level 2. I also teach on Digital Media Technologies and Cross Media Project.
I continue to research into the area of Interactive design and the new developments that are taking place within the industry. I have recently taught the development of Interactive Documentaries to students within the MAC department. In 2015 I conducted a workshop for delegates at the Doc/Fest/Crossover Lab – Sheffield Documentary Festival on the development of Interactive documentaries. My current research is into 360 VR video – the technique itself and the development of projects using this technique and am collaborating with a Sheffield based VR company to develop projects within this area.
I am an avid networker and attend many networking events in and around Sheffield. This enables me to connect with industry and bring in industry speakers and guest lecturers to my modules giving students an industry focus.
I am also the co-creator of the POP Initiatives set up with Melvyn Ternan, working towards enhancing student ownership of their courses, staff collaboration and industry awareness of the MAC departments course output
