Profile Picture
Research interests / activities:

Gina Moore has a background in fine arts (drawing, painting and sculpture) and 15 years experience as a 3D animator working mainly in the advertising industry.  Her experience with a variety of creative tools has led her to wonder whether there are inherent differences between traditional and digital media and her PhD research was born out of this question.  Broadly speaking, Gina is interested in the relation between perception, representation and technology.  She is interested in the various ways that these research interests can be married with a life long concern for non-human animals.
