Personal profile

Research interests

I am a heritage professional with a specialism in Museum Learning and my research is guided by the values of empowerment, agency and collaboration with communities at the centre of the research. 

I am a PhD candidate in the EPSRC funded Science and Engineering in Arts, Heritage and Archaeology (SEAHA) Centre for Doctoral Training. My doctoral project researches how the affordances of drone technology can facilitate agency in underserved communities, to connect with heritage places, collections and narratives.

I am interested in coproduction and codesign as equitable research practices that address the power imbalances between cultural institutions and left- behind communities; museums and social justice; creative methods in qualitative research; the role of drones and their new aesthetics in the reimagining of human geographies and spacial justice; identity and placemaking.
