Her research focuses on the scrapbooks of Scottish poet Edwin Morgan (1920-2010), which are held at the University of Glasgow Library Archives & Special Collections. As part of her research, Bridget has developed digital interface prototypes based on the Morgan scrapbooks and she is interested in the visual, sonic, and haptic digital remediation of ephemeral archives.
