my CV


my research

Object-oriented media and everyday remix. Picking up on my practice-research PhD, exploring how mobile and wearable networked devices such as phones and tablets enable a form of remix whereby users, organisations, companies and the state connect streams of information, data and stories, offering new ways of imag(in)ing and managing. 

Object-oriented practice-research. Developing an approach to academic and practical study and teaching of media, advertising and communication based on a philosophy of objects together with a commitment to answering research questions through practice and using research to inform practice. This methodology formed the basis of my PhD and has been the starting point for my teaching and curriculum development since.

These research projects form the basis of a book I am writing for Punctum: Mobile imag(in)ing: object-oriented practice-research (outline in PDF here):

my teaching

Hyphen: practice-research and advertising. Starting from my research and industry experience I develop courses at London College of Communication that empower students to address the challenges of contemporary communication and marketing through practice. My students address strategy through practice and practice through strategy, ready to take strategic and creative literacies out into industry.
