About me

I am a social scientist working at the intersection between human geography and media. I am located at Newcastle University, where I work as a Senior Lecturer in Media and Cultural Studies. Specifically my work investigates the cultures, economies and politics of digital interfaces and the role digital technologies play in transforming everyday life.

I am author of Phase Media: Space, Time and the Politics of Smart Objects (2017, Bloomsbury) and The Interface Envelope: Gaming, Technology, Power (2015, Bloomsbury). I have also co-edited a collection entitled Digital Geographies (2018, Sage) with Rob Kitchin and Agnieszka Leszczynski.
