I am a current SWW DTP funded PhD student in Drama. My research explores the cultural value of intergenerational art projects for people with dementia. I am specifically interested in extending knowledge on dementia and citizenship by analysis how (and if) intergenerational art programmes might identify people living with dementia as active subjects and create broader social meaning and value for participants engaged in these programmes.

I graduated from The University of Winchester in 2012, with a First Class combined BA (Hons) in Drama and Arts Management. 

I studied my MA in Theatre & Performance at Queen Mary University of London in 2014, where I was award a Distinction and the Marjorie Thompson Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement. 

I have worked as an Evaluator and Project Coordinator on several community projects and organisations including Project Phakama, NOFA, Duckie and Music First amongst others. 

I also work as an Arts Practioner & Research Associate for Encore Care Homes in Dorset, where I actively contribute to implementing creativity in the daily routine of the care home.

I have led several communities projects in Dorset, all of which involved the active participation of people with dementia within the creative process.
