Senior scientist - my PhD is in Astrophysics but my research concerns the design and development of intelligent environments (including smart garments) that enhance the lives of people living with disability. I develop interactive and immersive installations that embrace. both scientific and artistic preoccupations. I have also been exploring philosophical writings that address embodiment in an effort to create a stronger theoretical foundation for my research - the writings of W. James, J.J. Gibson, G. Deleuze, A.N. Whitehead and P. Sloterdijk in particular. In addition I write science fiction and design clothes.
