Timothy J. Senior is a scholar and artist, currently serving as a Knowledge Exchange Researcher for the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). In this role he is working closely with their four Creative Economy Hubs, a programme exploring how the arts and humanities can accelerate growth and innovation in the UK through knowledge exchange activities with creative organisations and businesses.His own research develops these themes further, asking how contemporary forms of practice in the arts, sciences, and humanities might be opened up to new collaborative interactions. Following his D.Phil. in Systems Neuroscience (Oxford 2008), this broader research interest has led to a visiting artist residency at Duke University (US) developing virtual reality installation work on the subject of memory and sleep (The Memory Tower), and a series of visiting lectureships at Jacobs University Bremen (Germany) spanning the arts, neuroscience, digital humanities, history of architecture, and the social and political sciences. In 2012 he was awarded a Junior Fellowship at the Hanse Institute for Advanced Study in Germany, conducting research on the emergence of innovative performance-based methods at the intersection between contemporary artistic and scientific practices.
