I am a Post-Doctoral Research Officer for UnMute, an interdisciplinary, EPSRC funded research project that creates novel, spoken language interaction opportunities with communities of minority language speakers who are currently digitally ‘unheard’. I work at the beautiful Computational Foundry at Swansea University with amazing colleagues and collaborators.
I also lead on the MASI-funded international lablets programme that innovates ways of co-creating with marginalized communities in a world that has been profoundly shaped by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Throughout my career I draw on the skill-sets and sensibilities I developed during my PhD at the Centre in ICT for Development at the University of Cape Town: designing, developing, and evaluating new technologies that give everyday people better access, awareness, and control over the stuff that matters to them.
More information and most of my publications are available on my website.
