My research interests are centred on how heritage (traditional handcrafts) and digital practices fuse to form hybrid methods in moving image design. Practice-led research into my own moving image work formed the core of my doctorate research. My work in education has also informed my pedagogic research into internationalisation, the moving image and lens-based media, forming an argument for future directions in art and design practice.
