Davy is an interdisciplinary researcher, focusing upon curiosity as a creative and exploratory process from both design centered and formal, algorithmic, viewpoints.
After completing a BA(Hons) in Fine Art at the University of Leeds and an MRes in Digital Media at Newcastle University’s Culture Lab, Davy recently studied for a PhD in Media Arts Technology at Queen Mary University of London. His thesis centered on the development of intrinsically motivated algorithms in neuroevolutionary computation.
Davy has also worked as a software developer in the creative industries, producing mobile applications for clients such as Tate.
Davy is now at the University of York, DC Labs researching the areas of interactive and non-linear narrative, and digital storytelling, particularly for their application to broadcast media.
