My research interests are focused upon inter disciplinary and cross sector collaboration across professional cultures and boundaries. Specifically, exploring the impact of emergent digital technologies on the creative economy in the design and delivery of product, service and experience.
A central aspect of my research is to explore the opportunities and challenges for developing new and meaningful knowledge exchange policies and tools for curating, catalyzing and sustaining collaborations between creative practitioners, academic and corporate research, businesses and public organizations.
My professional career has encompassed roles in the public and private sectors, initially as an economist, programme manager and senior consultant (working internationally) prior to my latest role focused upon developing knowledge exchange policies and tools in support of the creative economy at both a University and national level.
Beyond the PhD and Creative Exchange, my interests include photography, archaeology and hill walking.
