Dr Alice Watterson is an archaeologist and digital artist whose practice-based research explores the use of visualisation for public engagement and outreach. Since completing her PhD in 2014 she has worked across academia and creative practice to develop research strands in community co-design and multi-vocality in science communication for the heritage and museums sectors. Her interdisciplinary background facilitates this work by allowing her to fluently negotiate the space between the specialist insights of archaeologists and general audiences. Her current research focusses on community co-design working with and for Indigenous source-communities in the circumpolar north. In addition to her academic research, her visualisation work has been commissioned and shown internationally in museums, schools and on-site interpretation.
