Overview

I am a cultural geographer with interests in affect, embodiment, and skilled performance. My research seeks to understand how disruption occurs across more-than-human bodies and skill ecologies. During my PhD, I collaborated with an archery club to explore how new skills were developed and how intentionally disruptive processes could be used in controlled settings to cultivate resilience. These ideas have since informed discussions ranging from student welfare to interplanetary exploration.

I work to make my research engaging and accessible to audiences beyond academia and have utilized a number of creative and technological approaches to achieve this – including integrated optical illusions and virtual reality into posters. I carry this interest through to my work explore new and innovative methods of data collection and communication.

Prior to joining the department as an associate lecturer, I worked alongside the University of Exeter’s wellbeing services to provide peer-to-peer welfare support to students.
