Current research activities

 A Car for Women - research project on Dorothée Pullinger and the Galloway car with Professor Katherine Kirk and Professor Katarzyna Kosmala et al.  Producing practice-based research film output.

Beyond Image, Beyond Language -  with Professor Katarzyna Kosmala -  academic and research exchange with Tokyo Metropolitan Univeristy's IDEEALab.



I have a background in practice-based research and documentary filmaking but also wide ranging interdisciplinary  research interests at the intersections of culture, archaeology and industrial heritage, literature and creative media practice.

Desired research direction

I am interested in exploring the interface between artist moving-image and documentary practice.  In particular, I aim to investigate the intersections between science and art.
