Research interests

My primary research interest lies in exploring what can be said about the relations between learning activity and the environment in which it occurs. My work is informed by theories of material ecology and entanglement. Drawing on research in archaeology, anthropology, architecture and the learning sciences I aim to provide actionable insights for those tasked with the design and management of complex learning environments, through rich description of situated learning activity. My most significant contributions thus far include the analysis of networked learning environments, the development of multimodal means of analysing complex learning activity and pre and post occupancy studies of medical teaching facilities.
