Professor of Digital Culture, University of Liverpool

I am Professor of Digital Culture in the Department of Communications and Media at
the University of Liverpool. I am the Joint Director of the Digital Media and Society Institute and Deputy Director of the Defence Data Research Centre (DDRC). I have undertaken research on the social, political and cultural impacts of digital systems and media for three decades. A major focus is on projects that address digital inclusion and exclusion issues, working with national and regional governments and the 3rd sector to develop policies and interventions. Recent projects have explored citizens’ data and digital literacy and we are just completing a project to explore a “Minimum Digital Living Standard” for UK households – both funded by the Nuffield Foundation. As part of the work of the DDRC we are exploring attitudes to data use and AI in the UK workforce.
