Libby is a producer and developer working in the R&D Central Lab. She runs Better Radio Experiences, a project to invent novel audio experiences to address the underlying needs and wants of a young audience. She also runs the Tellybox Project, exploring the future experiences of television in the home. Both projects are user-led, and use design fictions and physical prototypes to get high-quality feedback on as many potential future experiences as possible.
Before joining the BBC she worked as a product manager at the IPTV company Joost, and prior to that worked on the Semantic Web at the University of Bristol, co-creating the FOAF vocabulary and writing and implementing one of the first RDF query languages.
She holds a PhD in Economics.
