I am a Ph.D candidate at CONNECT, the Research Centre for Future Communications and Networks at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. For the academic year 2017 -2018, I was a Fulbright visiting research scholar at the School of Media Studies at the New School in New York City. My research concerns the intersection of emerging network technologies with the materiality and politics of cities. I am a member of Annex, an international research and design collective comprised of architects, artists, and urbanists. Annex was selected to present Ireland’s national exhibition at the Biennale Architettura 2020.
Previously, I have worked as a researcher at the Interaction Design Centre at the University of Limerick, on the European 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.
