Tristan Bunn MSc, BTech

Lecturer

School of Music and Creative Media Production

I currently hold the role of Interactive Media Lecturer in the School of Creative Media Production, part of Massey's College of Creative Arts faculty in Wellington.

I'm keen to supervise Masters students researching the creative, experimental, and practical applications of interactive technology. This includes inter- and transdisciplinary projects that blend computing, design, and art to create new digital experiences for web, mobile, game, and immersive media.
