About me

I am a Lecturer in the School of Media, Arts and Design at the University of Westminster in London.

My research is concerned with the relationship between speed, technology and urban experience in electronic dance music scenes and subcultures, as well as in articulations of risk and malfunction in mass and new media. I successfully defended my PhD, entitled 'Renegade Hardware: Speed, Pleasure and Cultural Practice in Drum 'n' Bass', undertaken at London South Bank University, in 2009. In this area, I contributed the article 'Rumble in the Jungle: City, Place and Uncanny Bass' to Dancecult #4, Special Issue on DJ Culture (May 2011).
