Your Background

Your Biography

Debbie recently completed her PhD at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee, UK, in the fields of design and computing. Her interdisciplinary research investigated the local oral culture of storytelling, outlining the connections between storytelling as a culture and new media, suggesting that designers should reflect on traditional heritage as a means to view contemporary design challenges with fresh insight.

Prior to her doctoral research, Debbie was involved in designing novel interfaces for large scale taxonomies for a virtual learning experience and mapping sustainability issues. She is interested in social computing and design methodologies, having explored ethnographic and autoethnographic approaches in her thesis.

Debbie joined the International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies at Newcastle University, UK in 2010 to work on the Rock Art Mobile Project.
