Doctor in the house

After 4 years of study and research I obtained my doctorate from the University of Essex.

My research investigated whether it was possible to extract meaningful solutions to problems using collective action, facilitated by collaborative working platforms, games and social media.

The research applied these ideas to developing conservation technology tools, such as the Purple Octopus site for monitoring wildlife from social media posts.
