I study people's everyday material and epistemic practices - on the move or in situ - including experiences and practices of place-making and (distributed) collaboration. My approach is ethnographic and analytically rooted in ethnomethodology, science and technology studies and phenomenology. My work critically informs participatory, interdisciplinary socio-technical innovation. I actively co-design and facilitate the appropriation of cutting edge ubiquitous computing visions, technologies, platforms, and content in different settings (see, for example, Workspace and PalCom).

I am a Senior Research Lecturer in the mobilities.lab - an interdisciplinary collaboration between several different departments at Lancaster, and my research connects different fields of research: Mobilities Research, Design, Ethnomethodology, Science and Technology Studies, Participatory Design, Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW), and Ubiquitous Computing.
