Dan’s work straddles the academic fields of post-cinematic media and the creative economy, with some productive cross-pollination between the two. Having studied his undergraduate, masters and PhD degrees all within the Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths, he now contributes to both undergraduate and postgraduate modules.
Alongside developing his own research in the philosophy of digital media technology, Dan has engaged in extensive research work on fashion micro-economies with Prof Angela McRobbie and CREATe (RCUK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy), within a broader context of creative labour in neoliberal society. He has further engaged in creative collaborations and research consultancy with Creativeworks, the AHRC Creative Economy Programme, with digital visual artist Prickimage, and contemporary dance companies Zfin Malta and Corey Baker Dance.
He is a member of the steering group for the college-wide research theme 'Invention, Creativity and Experience’ which is invested in developing interdepartmental research collaboration around the issues of media, neuroscience and digital technologies.
