Personal statement

I'm a Lecturer in Creative Computing at Bath Spa University, and also currently finishing an EngD in Digital Media with the University of Bath.

My main research interest is in the generation of non-linear and interactive narratives for games, but I also have an interest in generative music for live performance.

I am very active in the Clojure programming language community, having run the Bristol Clojure meetup group for over two years. I like to promote Clojure as a tool for livecoding and rapid prototyping of ideas, making it ideal as a language for creative coding.
