I am Deputy Programme Director of the MSc Clinical Education at the University of Edinburgh and Director of the Edinburgh Summer School in Clinical Education. I am also a tutor on the MSc Digital Education.
My main areas of research are around technology, education and memory, although I am also interested in understanding how practitioners operate in and across complex settings environments. See the publications page for more details. My PhD thesis was about technology, photography and memory (see more via my memory blog).
