Research Interests

My interests are centred on the use of digital technology within the cultural sector, in particular the impact of new technology on the relationship between museums and their audiences. I have worked on a range of digital projects, dealing for example with the use of open data for resource discovery, data aggregation, and the development of a mobile application for cultural tourism. A key interest is in what happens when digital technology is used within the gallery space, how this varies between different audiences and types of museum, and how it helps shape the intellectual and emotional response of the viewer.
