Dr Louise Mullagh

Lecturer in Arts Management

Louise Mullagh

The LICA Building



Office Hours:

Tuesday 1.00 - 2.00pm

PhD supervision

I am willing to take PhD students who are interested in research in the following areas: Arts Management: Understanding the impact of emerging technologies (e.g., AI) on creative and cultural industries; Impact of emerging technologies on public policy, in particular cultural policy; use of creative methods and design in public policy (with an emphasis on emerging technologies)


Louise is an inter-disciplinary researcher whose work explores complex socio-technical challenges and the impacts upon a range of contexts. With a background in art history and curatorship, and more recently in public policy, Louise is interested in understanding how emerging technologies, such as AI, will impact upon our arts and culture.

Her current research explores how emerging technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) is impacting Creative and Cultural Industries (CCIs). Drawing upon her PhD in Digital Innovation, and her previous experience as a curator, Louise is currently developing projects that seek to engage CCIs in exploring the impact of AI on their industries.

Louise's recent research in public policy (spanning areas such as COIVD-19 Reaction and Resilience and IoT in public places) is being embedded in this new research, through exploring how policy should be designed in order to ensure responsible design and implementation of AI within CCIs.
