I am a practice-based PhD researcher at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh (funded by SGSAH, AHRC).

Using experimental film practice, my research explores embodied knowledge of chronic illness and care. This collaborative project works with community groups in Scotland to reveal new ways of representing illness, aiming to address issues of stigma and gender-based health inequalities by foregrounding lived experience.
