Personal homepage

I studied BSc Archaeology at UoS from 2011-2014. I then studied MSc Web Science from 2014-2015, during which time I won a full scholarship from Ordnance Survey to continue to PhD. My PhD focuses on understanding narratives within space. I take a thematic approach to topics of conversation within spaces, such as real-time economic indicators, and match these against established metrics to create novel ways of extracting and validating new methods of data collection.
