PhD Candidate in Media, Culture & Communication and Assistant Lecturer in History of Art & Museum Studies, Liverpool John Moores University

I am a printmaker, writer and doctoral researcher exploring performative image-making, sound art and writing processes. My thesis examines attitudes towards menstruation in Western culture, drawing on autoethnographic reflection on my own experiences of menstruating. The research considers the medicalisation of menstruation in the everyday, and utilises artistic practice as a method to deconstruct and challenge notions of menstrual normativity. Alongside my PhD programme I am an Assistant Lecturer in History of Art & Museum Studies, and tutor on various programmes at LJMU.
