I am excited about making the web physical.

Why? Because there is only one universal platform for the web and it's not this one you're reading my bio on - it's the one that you're sitting, standing or possibly floating in.

I am lecturer (associate professor) in product design at the University of Dundee in Scotland where I am part of a research group exploring social uses of digital technology. The research group has a bunch of makers doing PhDs, a masters programme, research fellows, interns and people that just want to join in with what we do.

My values are in social innovation and I believe that we need to work with people who are often ignored because of their social or economic backgrounds.

I live by the sea and can often be found in the café of Anstruther’s National Museum of Fisheries – a great place to visit and talk to me about making the web physical!
