I am leading the Playful Bodies, Technology and Community work stream. Key collaborators include D4D team members including Esther Fox, Sue Porter and Disability Arts Online as well as historians, players and game designers. I am a Reader in Media and Cultural Studies at the Institute of Education at UCL, University of London. My research specialisms are video games and screen studies.
I have led funded research on representations of disability and ability in video games, games and gender, online games and learning, and game methodology. I am deaf and live in London with my partner and daughter. More information about my work can be found at https://playhouse.wordpress.com/
