Music and Media

How do we prepare students for an ever-changing Digital Media industry - and for jobs that might not even exist currently! - while remaining world-leaders in traditional communications? That’s one of the most exciting things about what I do!

Biography

My field is the immersive industries; from a background in film cinematography, I’m now a VR experience-maker and a Transmedia Architect, and I have also published and spoken around the world about these fascinating new industries.

I’m incredibly proud of the fast-moving and adaptive course that we have developed here at UoG, where we use innovative and ground-breaking teaching workflows to prepare students for the industries of today, and the workplace of tomorrow!

Research

My main research focus is in Immersive and Transmedia storytelling, connected devices and emergent media, including Virtual and Augmented Reality. I have spoken about this at conferences around the world, published a number of papers and book chapters (including a current book project due for publication soon) and am occasionally asked to speak on platforms such as BBC radio. I am also fascinated by developing innovative and contemporary teaching methods.
