Projects per year
My career in Computing spans industry and academia. As an academic, my key interests lie in understanding the needs of real people and informing the design of digital technologies that cater for them. I collaborate across disciplines, and am adept at translating between them.
Before becoming an academic, I worked in Fintech, Utilities and manufacturing as a database designer, analyst and programmer.
My research group carries out research into lived experience in the Digital Age, with a focus on online identity, reputation, trust and cybersecurity. We traverse disciplinary boundaries, drawing on Human Computer Interaction, psychology, sociology, digital anthropology and design.
I have supervised the following PhD students to completion:
- Kirsten Smith (2016) Exploring personalised emotional support
- Karin De Wild (2019). Internet art and agency : the social lives of online artworks
- Daniel Herron (2021) Design for relationship break ups : curation of digital possessions
- Lee Cheatley (2021) Continued bonds : towards the design of computationally creative bereavement support
- Lucy Robertson (2021) Interactive Textiles for Wellbeing
I currently teach on the MSc in Cybersecurity, and supervise undergraduate and Mc dissertations.
