Research Fellow, Faculty of Science
My research interests are in the effects that the design of technology has on the behaviour of its users, revealed via a grounded theory approach combining ethnography, contextual inquiry and participatory design/co-design with real users. Since completing my PhD in the University of Nottingham's Mixed Reality Lab in 2010 I have applied these methods to develop and study technology with a broad spectrum of users and settings, with a focus on exploring the role that Internet-of-Things and mobile technologies can play in encouraging sustainability (both from ecological and cultural heritage perspectives). In particular, in my current role in Horizon (where I have been a Research Fellow since 2011) I develop and evaluate technologies that enable for forms of visitor engagement on cultural heritage sites, including location-based experiences, visual markers, and BLE/NFC. I co-lead the University of Nottingham's "Heritage and the Digital" research priority area - a network of leading academics from backgrounds that span Digital Economy and Humanities - identified as an area of existing and emerging research strength. I also provide training for SMEs and practitioners around use of new technologies for public engagement, and consult on digital strategy for visitor engagement.
