Experience

Education

I have a degree in Computer Science with Design from Lancaster University. Modules completed include Human-Computer Interaction, Software Design, and Internet Applications Engineering from the School of Computing and Communications, and Innovation and Design and Design Thinking from the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts.

I have also completed a dissertation entitled "Investigating the use & implications of smart speakers", an ethnographic study exploring users' views on smart speakers, how privacy figures into this and how smart speakers alter the use of other digital devices. The report makes a series of recommendations for users, devevelopers and policy makers based on the study's findings.

Other projects

I also work with digital marketing agencies on bigger WordPress projects, such as:

  • developing a bespoke WooCommerce store with the ability to book trips across multiple dates, add extras to the booking, and gather information about attendees;
  • developing a bespoke WooCommerce plugin to simplify accounting;
  • developing a custom WordPress plugin to synchronise documentation from an external system.
