Research Interests

My research interests focus on the intersections between media technologies and social and cultural practice, in areas such as broadcasting and social media. I am particularly interested in creative uses of technologies in visual and sound arts and experimental music, the conceptualisation and use of radio spectrum and wireless technologies, and disaster recovery and resilience for creative communities.
