About

I am a designer with over two decades of experience in the area of interaction, animation and moving image design, including teaching, research and development, project management, knowledge transfer and public engagement. I am currently Professor of Technology and Inclusion and Director of the Centre for Applied Research in Inclusive Arts and Design (CARIAD). CARIAD is a multi-disciplinary centre, bringing the disciplines of the arts, sport and psychology together to work on applied research projects with stakeholder partners.

Research interests

My current research examines the relationship between self-awareness, agency and the experience of enchantment within special education contexts. I established a Special Interest Group, within Cardiff Met FabLab, with the goal to develop co-production models that enable teaching professionals to use digital fabrication as a means to articulate the methods, validity and scope of digital engagement within the expressive arts for marginalised and disengaged learners.
