Monika is Senior Lecturer in Sociology, and part of ImaginationLancaster through her role as director of the Mobilities.lab Lancaster. Since her PhD study of the practical and collaborative nature of imaginative practice, she has developed a programme of research on mobile work in creative and other professions, including healthcare, event management and emergency response. Her methodological innovations in video ethnography and ethnographically informed innovation have contributed to several research fields, including participatory design, computer supported cooperative work (CSCW), and palpable and pervasive computing.
