Biography

I am a post-doctoral lecturer, currently working as a Senior Digital Media Technologist. I am responsible for the delivery and assessment of the Video Production Techniques and Live Video Production modules and I supervise a number of undergraduate degree projects. In addition to this I undertake a number of research and commercial projects. This has led to many diverse projects ranging from novel broadcast recording studios for non-technical users, to the design and implementation of interactive spaces. I also take a lead role in the production of a number of live video broadcast events produced by the Media Technology Lab.

Outside my role within the University I have co-foundered and run a startup business called MAVIS. MAVIS is changing the way broadcasters and rights holders make live content. From capture to production we are re-imagining the live workflow with a cloud-based production model. Our on-demand platform provides a complete production toolset for professional simultaneous live broadcasts. MAVIS is creating products that allow customers to optimise their business, giving them new opportunities to produce engaging live content that looks and sounds great. This allows them to unlock new revenue streams through new content, tailed content and unique advertising opportunities.
