I am a practice-based PhD researcher at Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh.

Using experimental film practice, my research seeks to translate women’s embodied knowledge of long-term illness. This collaborative project works with women in Scotland to reveal new ways of representing illness, aiming to address issues of stigma and gender-based health inequalities by foregrounding lived experience.
