I am a Lecturer in Communications & Media (Multimedia Production) at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London (LCC, UAL). You can pre-order my debut book here. I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA).
I am also a member of the Screen Worlds collective, which involves managing our project website, creating digital content, promoting events and preparing quantitative and qualitative engagement reports for the European Research Council (ERC).
I have presented talks and sat on panels across a range of institutions - such as: Birkbeck, UCL, SOAS and Goldsmiths - as well as at public events and spaces, including FOCUS: The Meeting Place for International Production, Ars Electronica Festival and Bertha DocHouse.
My written work (journalistic and academic) has featured in a variety of international publications, including: The Location Guide, makers magazine, the LMGI's Compass, Screen Worlds, ICE News and Insight, Black Camera, and MSMI (Music, Sound, and the Moving Image).
I previously worked as Web Editor at The Location Guide (TLG), where I wrote 100s of web pieces about the media production sector, interviewed international filmmakers, and promoted TLG's business conference FOCUS. Alongside this role, I was Locations Editor of the company's b2b publication makers magazine, writing an array of features and proofreading the final copy for the Cannes 2022 and FOCUS 2021 editions.
I also worked as Knowledge Content Producer (multimedia) at the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). In response to the Grenfell Tower Disaster and ICE's 'In Plain Sight' report, our team was tasked with delivering the organisation's updated education programme through a combination of podcasts, videos and written learning packs as well as special lectures and panel discussions. Our mixed media outputs explored pressing civil engineering topics - from decarbonisation to disaster risk management - with members of SARAID, Grenfell Next of Kin, bridgeUkraine and Transport for London.
I studied at UCL and SOAS; my masters thesis won the SOAS School of Arts Postgraduate Dissertation Prize, and I received a three-year PhD research scholarship. I successfully defended my PhD thesis by viva voce examination with no revisions or corrections.
