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 relationship between bodies and technologies and how technologies shape and alter the practices, experiences and capacities of those who use them.
I am primary investigator on the ESRC funded project ‘Digital Interfaces and Debt: understanding mediated decision making processes in high cost short term credit products’ that runs between 2016-18.
I am author of The Interface Envelope: Gaming, Technology, Power (2015, Bloomsbury Press). More information about the book can be found here.
