My research interest is in media theory. In my doctoral dissertation, I researched the ways in which online multi-user gaming technology can affect the inter-subjective perception of space and the interpretation of its history. I locate my research and my teaching at a conjuncture of history, theory and technology. I am interested in teaching Design as a cognitive activity. I am especially interested in Design media and the ways in which they are socially deployed in Design discourse, and the effects they introduce in Design practice. I am interested in the history and theory of Virtuality in art and architecture. I am also interested in the history and theory of Place in general and issues of the perception of place in both actual and virtual (both conventional and computed) environments in particular.
