PhD student, Associate Lecturer

Research Overview

I am a second year PhD student at Lancaster University, supervised by Dr. Jason Alexander. I finished my BSc in IT for Creative Industries at Lancaster in 2015. My interests are in Human Computer Interaction, focusing on shape-changing displays - specifically their design and fabrication. My PhD research so far has focused in understanding the purpose of shape-changing displays and interfaces as a new and novel technology. This has been addressed through content generation explorations and by developing approaches for building shape-changing displays through accessible design and fabrication methods.
