I’m a researcher and creative practitioner at the University of Edinburgh, working in human-algorithm interaction - exploring the messy terrain between people, data and things through a combination of making and thinking. Current research questions include: How can we understand the algorithmically mediated society that we are heading towards? How can we ensure that there is space for people within computational systems, preserving privacy, choice, identity and humanity while making use of the possibilities of emerging technology? How can we work with things that have an increasing sense of agency, from sensing to responding to shaping the world around them? See info on academic work, with more detail on research, teaching and PhD supervision.

In my creative practice I engage with interactions between people and technology. This includes electronic music making (especially with laptop trio Raw Green Rust), building software for different kinds of musicking and a collection of technology based artworks.
