My work focuses on urban political communication and the impact of digital technologies on architecture, art and design. I am broadly interested in how material infrastructures and digital media practices are increasingly intertwined. The research I undertake is, therefore, quite interdisciplinary and draws together such fields as architectural and urban studies, digital media theory, memory studies, philosophy of aesthetics and communication theory.

I am currently the Director of the Vasari Research Centre for Art and Technology and the co-director of the BA Media and Culture.
