Research Overview

I am a Senior Research Assistant at Coventry University’s Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE)  and also work as an independent artist, dancer and teacher.

MY RESEARCH VISION: I am inspired by interdisciplinary work and collaborative projects and modes of working. The combination of the practical and the theoretical underpins all of my research interests and I am guided by bringing people together. Working with vulnerable groups and using the arts and education to engage communities and participate in projects that lead to a more inclusive society, is what I am hoping to achieve with my academic research. Cultural heritage and digital technologies is also a key part of my current practice.
