Peter trained and worked as an industrial designer in Sheffield before undertaking his PhD studies in design and prototyping technologies, at the Art and Design Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University. He joined the Centre for Fine Print Research, University of the West of England, in February 2007, to take up the position of RCUK Research Fellow in the Centre’s 3D research laboratory.

Peter’s ongoing programme of research focuses on creative uses for new 3D technologies such as CAD-CAM and rapid prototyping (3D printing) and 3D scanning within art and design practice. His interdisciplinary enquiry aims to identify and explore “radical” uses (and users) of new 3D technologies, expanding boundaries in terms of their applications, and opening up new possibilities and perspectives on creative practice. Peter enjoys undertaking research and technical consultancy in diverse fields of practice, and he has recently contributed to projects in the fine and applied arts, animation, and robotics.
