I am a researcher at CONNECT, the Research Centre for Future Communications and Networks at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) Ireland, where I currently lead TCD research on the EU Horizon 2020 funded project, ‘Artsformation‘. My research interests include emerging network technologies and socio-political change; urban politics and; technology and creative practice collaborations. I am a member of ANNEX, the curatorial team for the Irish Pavilion “Entanglement’ at the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale in 2021 and co-editor of the book, States of Entanglement: Data in the Irish Landscape (Actar Publishers, 2021). I lecture in Critical Practices of the Environment and Ecology in the School of Visual Culture at the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) Dublin.
I was a Fulbright visiting research scholar at the School of Media Studies at the New School in New York City (2017 -2018). Previously, I have also worked as a researcher at the Interaction Design Centre at the University of Limerick, on the EU FP7 project ‘Material EncounterS with digital Cultural Heritage’, which explored the convergence of materiality, digital resources and smart objects in the context of cultural institutions. I have published in various computing and design publications including Archplus, The Site Magazine and CSCW and have exhibited work at the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik, Berlin and the Slade Research Centre, London. Before engaging in academia, I worked for urban design and landscape architecture practices in Germany, Denmark and the UK. I hold a Masters of Architecture in Urban Design from the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London.
