Prof. Stuart Jeffrey

Stuart Jeffrey is Professor of Digital Heritage at the School of Simulation and Visualisation, The Glasgow School of Art. Stuart studied a combined honours degree in Computer Science and Archaeology at the University of Glasgow and completed his PhD in three dimensional modelling of early medieval sculpted stones, also at the University of Glasgow, in 2003. His work at the School of Simulation and Visualisation covers all aspects of heritage visualisation and the use of new technologies to create records, analyse, interpret, and present every form of heritage from built to intangible. Stuart’s research interests focus on how these technologies transform the relationships between individuals, academia and broader contemporary communities of interest and the heritage in question, and how they can be deployed for the benefit of communities and the places in which they live.

Before joining The Glasgow School of Art Stuart worked for a number of years for the West of Scotland Archaeology Service and joined the Archaeology Data Service (ADS), based at the University of York, in 2006. As Deputy Director at the ADS he managed a number of major digital heritage research projects funded by JISC, the AHRC, the European Union and the NEH.

Stuart has published extensively on diverse topics in archaeology and computer science, including notions of digital authenticity, creative response in heritage, medieval sculpted stones, archaeological informatics, visualisation techniques, digital preservation, natural language processing, and the use of social media in archaeology. Stuart is a member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists and a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
