PhD Research: Presently, I am working on a PhD thesis entitled: ‘Talking Heads: The use of virtual human presenters in the delivery of personalised content’. The subject matter explores human engagement with, and potential uses for artificially intelligent, simulated, on-screen presenters. The work is multi-disciplinary and straddles the Department of Journalism and the Department of Computer Science at City, University of London.
During my present academic sabbatical from commercial work, I created a module on Cross Media, for which I was an External Lecturer at the Danish School of Media & Journalism, and I was a Guest Lecturer at Copenhagen University, teaching Branded Content to postgraduate students on an MA Film and Media Studies degree. I hold a Masters by Research degree in digital content from the University of Birmingham, and a Bachelor of Arts in Politics and Sociology from the University of Liverpool.
