A little bit about me

I am a lecturer in Digital Media in Maynooth University and I teach on the BA Media Studies programme. I graduated from the School of Culture and Communication in the University of Melbourne in 2015 with a PhD in Media Studies.

My PhD thesis is a multidisciplinary investigation of the social and spatial impact of digital technologies in the contemporary mediated city through ethnographic research on participatory art.

My main research interest is the analysis of contemporary social and spatial exchanges mediated by digital technologies in urban space. I have published papers on participatory art, urban studies and Internet studies.

Prior to joining Maynooth University I was Assistant Lecturer and Programme Director for the BA in Communications in Creative Media in the Dundalk Institute of Technology (2013-2016).

I hold a BA in Architecture and City Planning (University of Sao Paulo), a BA in Digital Media Design and Production (Letterkenny Institute of Technology) and a MSc in Interactive Digital Media (Trinity College). I have previously worked as an architect and web designer and I was an Editorial Board Member of the Platform Journal of Media and Communications (2010-2011).

I was awarded a MSc with Distinction in Interactive Digital Media from Trinity College Dublin in September 2009. I also hold a BA(Hons) (First Class Honours) in Digital Media, Design and Production from the Letterkenny Institute of Technology, Ireland and a Bachelors in Architecture and City Planning from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

My final project for my Masters course was a collaborative web interface telling the story of the Museum Building inside the Trinity Campus.

Between September and November 2009 I participated in the Designing Dublin project, a collaborative and multidisciplinary project run by Design Twentyfirst Century in partnership with Dublin City Council, Creative Dublin Alliance and KaosPilots.

My research interests include social studies, Internet studies, performative arts, digital technologies, design, urban studies and science, technology and society studies (STS).
