Drawing on my background in computing, my teaching and research involves building systems and technologies to ask questions about emerging media and what it means for human experience. In this work, I value human-centered, arts-integrative and multidisciplinary ways of working and work closely with closely with architects, designers and artists. This work focuses on topics including data and human experience, the maker movement, and the internet of things. I also build capacities through innovative pedagogies and platforms that build communities of practices and to enable others work in these ways.
