Personal profile


I am Lecturer in Creative Writing (Interdisciplinary Futures) at the University of Edinburgh, a novelist, writer of short stories and former videogame producer. 

Prior to joining Edinburgh, I was a Postdoctoral Research and Development Fellow in Narrative and Play at the University of Dundee where I explored the creative writing applications of emerging technologies including AI, text generation and interactive TV.

Prior to this, I was Innovation Fellow at the British Library where I worked on the Library's Emerging Formats project. I created a special collection of web-based interactive narratives, a technical report describing collection tools and techniques and an interactive work which reflected on the collection process.

My PhD project, That's Not How It Should End: The Effect of Reader/Player Responses on the Development of Narrative was completed at Nottingham Trent University in July 2019. The project explored how reader/player responses shape unfolding narratives and how the dialogue between reader/player and creator affects creative processes and products. I produced an interactive novella (Writers Are Not Strangers) and a creative-critical thesis exploring reader/player/creator relationships in literature and games.
