I am a postdoctoral fellow interested in the intersections between artificial intelligence, digital media and literature. In my PhD thesis, I explored the poetics unique to machine written texts, and how they forecast a future of AI-penned literature. I have also researched and taught in game design, Australian and digital media, online cultures, copyright law, and digital writing. Over the years I have kept a creative practice as a narrative designer for videogames, musician and journalist. Currently, I am working with the EPICentre at UNSW on tools for narrative visualisation.
