We are pleased to announce that Dr Shreepali Patel has joined the Cultures of the Digital Economy Research Institute as its new Director.

Shreepali is a filmmaker who has completed over 30 broadcast documentaries, drama and BBC Radio 4 documentaries, including the BAFTA-award winning Dawn. Her most recent project The Crossing (pictured) was a powerful multi-screen film that showed the horrors of sex trafficking, and was shortlisted by the AHRC for their Research Film of the Year award.

Shreepali's research interests include cross-disciplinary collaborations between audio-visual art, science and politics, making her the perfect candidate to lead CoDE forward into fascinating new projects. She is already busy organising events for the upcoming months, so make sure to check our site soon for more updates.
