Dr Leon Barker

Technical Associate

ADI

Whether it is designing electronic prototypes or producing 3D graphics I love to create and digital technology is my medium. I am passionate about user centred design and I enjoy solving problems that tailor solution to the needs of end users. I have a background in Virtual reality software development, Research and design.

    Studied Critical Fine Art Film and Video at Central Saint Martins before doing a Master in Interaction Design at the Royal College of Art. After a period of working at the Science Museum as a New Media developer completed a PhD in Computer-Vision for Gesture Interaction.

    Worked for 4 years as Post-Doc research fellow at Sussex University while conducting research into motion capture, 3D data visualisation, crypto-currency and the internet of things.

    Currently works as a freelance Creative Technologist and Lecturer.
