Biographical details

Fiona Andreallo is a lecturer in digital cultures in the department of media and communications. Her research interests focus on the ways people communicate through and with new media technologies. Her creative industry work as a digital media artist prior to entering formal academic practice focused primarily on development of visual communication in medical, scientific and social practices. Her interdisciplinary academic research has extended from this work to focus on contemporary developments of communication through social media, artificial intelligence and robotics.
