I am an academic specialising in digital communication. My research explores the relationship between digital technologies & theories of literature and culture.
I am a regular contributor to ACM Hypertext and Social Media, frequently serving on the programme committee. Additional contributions have featured at the ICIDS and SHARP conferences. I am a member of the PRCA International University Advisory Group and academic reviewer for numerous journals.
Recent journal articles and book chapters explore the relationship between digital technology and authorship. I am also engaged in professional practice as a web and graphic designer.
My research focuses on new media technologies, specifically how the nature and practices of creative writing and narrative operate within this space. I am also engaged in professional practice as a web and graphic designer.
