I am a Lecturer in Media and Communication at DMU. As an early career researcher interested in agency in and around videogames, I published articles on playfulness, agency, and narrativity in games. I am currently working on a monograph based on my doctoral research focusing on player agency as a game design affordance in avatar-based videogames, and their conceptualisations by game developer discourse. I am also a guest researcher at the Game Studies Research Group at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
In the past I taught media production studies and research design at the University of Nottingham, and visual culture and visual communication at Nottingham Trent University. I also worked on research projects in collaboration with the heritage sector, and the television industry.
