Michael initially joined the TREAT-NMD team in March 2009 and was responsible for maintaining and developing the TREAT-NMD website.
He has since moved on in his role overseeing the design and development of many of the websites, systems and promotional materials that are currently used in the John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre.
Michael achieved his MA by comparing and combining traditional facial animation techniques with scientific data on facial expression.
He then went on the work on the Design4Science project at the University of Sunderland which promoted significant scientific discoveries within molecular biology featuring work and exhibits from several eniment scientists. On this project Michael was responsible for not only the promotional website but much of the design and content of the exhibition which was displayed in venues including Copenhagen’s Medical Museum and the Nobel Museum in Stockholm.
