Personal profile

Research interests

I’m an intersectional feminist academic, working in the subject areas of design justice, disability justice and mobilities. I am currently doing my PhD at Brighton university and the main focus of my work critiques traditional structures of inclusive participatory research practices and the legacies of oppression that they reproduce. My work aims to rethink design and research methodologies from an ontological perspective enabling new ways of mobilising marginalised communities. This focus on mobilities over participation enables designers and researchers to practice working within frameworks that actively dismantle these legacies of oppression.
