PhD Research: Presently, I am writing up my PhD thesis entitled: ‘Talking Heads: The use of virtual human presenters for the delivery of personalised news content’. The subject matter explores human engagement with, and potential uses for artificially intelligent, computer-simulated, on-screen presenters. The work is multi-disciplinary and is supervised jointly by the Department of Journalism and the Department of Computer Science at City, University of London.
During my present sabbatical, I have created a module on Cross Media, for which I was an external lecturer at the Danish School of Media & Journalism. I am also a Guest Lecturer at Copenhagen University, teaching Branded Content to postgraduate students of Film and Media Studies. I hold an MA by Research from the University of Birmingham, and a BA Combined Honours in Politics and Sociology from the University of Liverpool.
