I am a Lecturer in the Institute of Educational Technology at The Open University.

My research interests sit at the crossroads of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Educational Technology. I’m particularly focused on the design and evaluation of novel systems that support creative and open forms of learning, across formal and informal settings. See publications for examples.

Previously I was a Horizon Research Fellow and Lecturer in the School of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham, working on projects including ArtMaps, Understanding the Multiscreen Household, and Stories of User Appropriation. Before that, I was a researcher at the Institute of Educational Technology at The Open University, on the Open Learning: Bridge to SuccessDigital Scholarship  and Out There and In Here projects. Before that I completed my PhD research in Computer Science at the University of Bath, studying how computers can be designed to support creative interaction.
