FOUNDER, BEKTIO LTD.
Becky is a developer and specialist in emerging technologies. Her company builds mixed reality prototypes and solutions for clients using Microsoft HoloLens, with a keen focus on elucidating best practices for user experience in this new paradigm. Becky also co-organises the meetup groups Immersive Liverpool and Mixed Reality London.
Before founding Bektio she was Head of Making at the Future Cities Catapult and worked on London 2036 installation (featured in the Big Bang Data exhibition at Somerset House), New User Experiences for Cycling, CITIE, Organicity, and Whereabouts London. Prior to that she was Lead Producer in the mobile games industry – working on hit titles including Angry Birds and Moshi Monsters: Moshlings. She also produced IPTV prototypes for clients including the BBC.
Her passion for science and technology led her to completing degrees in Computer Science, Bioinformatics & Systems Biology, and Biochemistry – all from Imperial College London.
Unsurprisingly, as a child her favourite TV show was Tomorrow’s World.
Becky is available for speaking opportunities about Mixed Reality, HoloLens and immersive technologies.
