Personal profile

Research interests

My research sits at the intersection of cultural studies, computer science, and philosophy. Responding to the penetration of digital media and technology into contemporary computational culture, the core question driving my current research is a critical reinterpretation of the philosophical legacy of phenomenology with a view to developing a renewed post-phenomenology of technology capable of responding to the spread of artificial intelligence in contemporary computational culture. The philosophical and political implications of this line of enquiry is directed towards an intervention into the discourse around politics of technology and the construction of meaning in a digital society. I also write and think about software, ecology, decolonialism, and aesthetics.

Approach to teaching

My teaching specialisms are digital culture and philosophy, with specific expertise in the history of artificial intelligence and big data. I have taught on a range of undergrad and postgrad levels at Goldsmiths, King's College London, and the University of Brighton where I am also the course leader for MA Digital Media, Culture and Society. I am a qualified Fellow of the Higher Education Academy with a PGCert in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education. I understand education as a vital social activity that helps human beings to relate to the world, understand who they are, what their place in the world is, and empower them to increase their potential to act in and on the world. Teaching and learning is a praxis that can help people to orient themselves towards others, be that of other scholars in an academic community, or of fellow citizens and the complex ecology of life that this planet sustains.

Supervisory Interests

I am interested in supervising doctoral students on a range of topics and themes including: digital culture, software studies, AI/machine learning/data and society, cultural theory, philosophy of technology, and related subjects. Proposals for theoretically-oriented critical approaches are particularly welcome.
