I am the founder of design//digital, a boutique design consultancy supporting the design, engineering and management of digital products and services that interact with humans.

Until recently, I was a postgraduate researcher at the University of Cambridge’s Engineering Design Centre. My research (and PhD) focussed on the improvement of design processes and methodologies for the development of mobile touchscreen devices. Previously, I completed a BA, MEng and MA in Information Engineering at the University of Cambridge.

I am co-founder of the Cambridge University Science and Policy Exchange, a society created by and for early career researchers encouraging effective communication amongst researchers, scientists, engineers, industry representatives and policymakers.

I lead the development of The Mephistophone, an Arts Council funded digital instrument, which premiered at the Royal Opera House in 2014 and is since then undergoing active development at the University of Cambridge’s Computer Laboratory.

Since 2006, I report in print for the Austrian daily newspaper Kurier as a weekly columnist on emerging consumer technologies and products.

My interests revolve around the creation of innovative and human-centred digital products and services, particularly those that cater for users with varying capabilities. I am the author of both academic and non-academic pieces in a range of fields, including information engineering, design, public health, and computer science.
