I joined the Department in January 2013 as Lecturer in Sociology. Prior to coming to Loughborough, I was Research Fellow at the Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute as the University of Nottingham and British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow and Simon Research Fellow in Sociology at the University of Manchester.
As a sociologist with a background in mathematics and computer science, my research interests lie at the social-technical interface, in particular, in Science & Technology Studies (STS) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).
Research projects include the study and design of ‘kar2ouche’, an innovative educational software developed as part of the Oxford-Intel Education Initiative, a pioneering study of professional mathematical research practice, as well as an interdisciplinary project on Public Access Wi-Fi Service (PAWS).
