Biography

I am a post-doctoral researcher, currently working as a 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.

My current research interests include (i) novel mobile technologies for filmmaking and broadcast production and (ii) rapid content production for distance learning. I have recently worked on a professional tool cinematic video recording on a mobile device. As part of the Media Technology Lab we continue to use this tool as a platform to further investigate the technical possibilities of mobile devices when used for filmmaking and to understand the challenges users face when filmmaking on a mobile device.
