I am an animated documentary maker, specialising in films about and around science.
Amongst my film awards is one ‘for Scientific Merit’ from the journal Nature (Imagine Science Film Festival, New York, 2010). I have most recently directed Loop (an Animate Projects commission funded by the Wellcome Trust, 2016), which has screened internationally at festivals (including Imagine Science Festival, Encounters International Short Film Festival, UK and Stuttgart Trickfilm festival, Germany) and most recently won a prize at the RawScience festival, LA.
I have a Ph.D. by practice (2015), about the way animation can be used to document perceptual brain states, such as phantom limb syndrome and prosopagnosia.
I am a senior lecturer in Animation at the University of Wolverhampton, and a senior fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I am the co-author of Fundamentals of Animation (2nded) with Paul Wells (Bloomsbury, 2016).
