Personal profile


I'm an interdisciplinary HCI researcher in the Department of Computer Science and the School of Medical Sciences at the University of Manchester. I'm interested in fostering human-computer interaction to investigate the applicability and usability of algorithmic outputs in various settings, addressing trust issues, testing new strategies, exploring content creation and consumption by users, and the policies of their future use in a technically informed society. I'm further a Turing Research Ethics Reviewer and group organiser at the Alan Turing Institute, where I lead the AI, Arts and Creative Industries Interest Group. I'm also the University of Manchester's Co-Chair and Local Network Lead for Open and Reproducible Research.
