I am a Professor in the Department of Computing at Goldsmiths.

From 2008-2015 I ran the BSc in Creative Computing, Digital Arts Computing and MA/MFA Computational Arts. I also played a large role in the creation and development of our Music Computing programme.

I am now programme leader for the Goldsmiths College MSci in Creative Computing and Computer Science, and the PhD in Arts and Computational Technologies.

I run Goldsmiths Digital, the consulting arm of our department and research groups activities. Goldsmiths Digital develops core technology and product prototypes for commercial organisations by applying our expertise in signal processing, machine learning, interface design and real-time interaction. We’ve worked on over 40 prototypes. Here are some examples.

I co-founded the Goldsmiths Digital Studios Embodied Audiovisual Interaction Group (EAVI). I am involved in a range of research in Creative Computing, including sound, graphics and interaction.

I led the world’s first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in Creative Coding, the first ever English MOOC. Over 150,000 people enrolled. I contribute to the new Coursera specialisation in Responsive Web Development, and a new Kadenze MOOC on Audiovisual Programming.

I am Director of the Daphne Oram Collection.
