My research explores notions of polyvocalism through a practice of voices in design, writing and performance, with a particular interest in analogies staged across theatre, psychoanalysis, interiors, and architecture. More recently I have been exploring the role of interdisciplinarity and collaboration in design pedagogy.
In the School of Architecture and Cities, I am a member of the Making and Practice Research Group.
As an ardent supporter of setting up synergies across sectors, disciplines, and institutions, I would encourage you to get in touch if you have an idea of a way we could collaborate.
