Community and Business

I engage in business outreach activities, such as University based consultancies in digital heritage (e.g. with the Victoria and Albert Museum) and with Synertial UK, a leading motion capture company. I have worked with American Express on a project to investigate how the Internet of Things, Wearables and Blockchain technologies can be applied to digital and shared economies.
