Training and education

PhD. Graduation ceremony

My academic research is inter- and multi-disciplinary and uses art-based research methods such as drawing, digital design and performance. I lean towards ethnographic and auto-ethnographic research approaches, focusing on detailed investigations of lived experience.

My research is informed by my training and experience in sport, dance and theatre. I work as a theatre designer, digital/graphic designer, performer and workshop leader.

I am also a volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Society and a supporter of the purple angel campaign.
