I am an interdisciplinary researcher working to support more meaningful and accessible engagements with data. I have worked extensively with large-scale conversational and text-based datasets, particularly with a view to identify and extract interactional dynamics.

I am currently working on the Perspective Media project, exploring how interactive video storytelling approaches can support new ways for individuals to engage with data. Specifically, we are interested in how data-driven personalised adaptive content can be created, by collaborating with film makers, interactive media practitioners and data analysts. Additionally, the project will evaluate the user experiences associated with such viewing practices, in terms of the enjoyment, engagement and ethical considerations that surface.
