Senior Lecturer in Media, Arts and Communications

- Culture and Creativity Research Institute
I currently teach digital media production skills and theory on a range of Media Arts and Communications courses including the Foundation Year, BA Digital Media Production, MA Immersive Arts and MA Digital Media Management. My PhD research explores relationships between photography, memory and 3D immersive technologies.
I began teaching in higher education in 2005 alongside my work as a freelance motion graphics and video content producer. My teaching style aims to develop high-level problem solvers and independent thinkers, and to cultivate a culture of innovation and creative risk-taking. My modules involve design, photography, film, 2D and 3D motion graphics, and contextual studies. My practice-based PhD research uses 3D scanning, VR, AR and other immersive technologies to interrogate their impact on photography and how this affects its relation to social, cultural and psychological aspects of memory.
