I am the Project and Communications Manager for the Centre for Research in Digital Education, and Project Manager (UoE) for the Move2Learn project. I'm also currently working with colleagues in Edinburgh College of Art to map film education across Scotland. My previous research has focused on digital and mobile approaches to engagement and evaluation of cultural experience, including the AHRC Artcasting project and Litlong (School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures). My professional background, connecting young people (in schools) with arts, creative and cultural activity, directly influenced my doctoral study of cultural value in publicly funded (participatory) arts projects.
