Alice Watterson is an archaeologist and digital artist based at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee, where she currently works as a lecturer and post-doctoral research assistant with the 3DVisLab. Her practice-based research explores the use of archaeological visualisation and digital media as an interpretive tool for public engagement and outreach.
Since completing her PhD in 2014 she has worked across academia and creative practice to develop research strands in community co-design and multi-vocality in science and heritage communication. Her interdisciplinary background facilitates this work by allowing her to fluently negotiate the space between the specialist insights of archaeologists and general audiences. In addition to her academic research, her visualisation work has been commissioned and shown internationally in museums, schools and on-site interpretation.
