Cefn Hoile


Project: @ShrimpingIt

Cefn is currently in the 4th year of his PhD with the University HighWire Centre for Doctoral Training.

Originally from Monmouth in Wales, Cefn has worked and studied extensive with a number of organisations and institutions across the country.  Throughout his time at Lancaster he has shown his interest for all things technical with a range of activities involving digital engineering.

Lancaster as a location is perfect for Cefn and his interests, a keen paraglider the proximity of the Lakeland fells and Trough of Bowland give him the places to take to the skies.  This gives him the perfect escape from the sometimes austere concrete surroundings that he finds himself in on campus.

Cefn has had no shortage of success with technology but unsurprisingly he considers “The Shrimp”, an arduino compatible breadboard circuit, that he created to be his greatest success.  Just don’t talk to him about Microsoft Windows, he is far from a fan!

He is now hoping to develop his skills on running collaborative design workshops as he looks to get involved in more diverse areas of work.

Claim to fame: Cefns interactive digital works have been shown at the Tate Gallery, V&A Museum and the BBC. Find out more about them here!
