I am Dean of Research and Innovation in the College of Arts, Business, Law and Social Sciences (ABLSS). In this role I work with the Pro Vice Chancellor for ABLSS, with the Executive Core Group and with staff members, students and other stakeholders from within the university and beyond, to develop policies and procedures for research development and training and to support researchers and Higher Degree by Research students to achieve the best outcomes they can from their research work.
My research centres around questions of ethics and responsibility in and in response to contemporary art practice, with a particular focus on performance, installation and digital arts. I am particularly interested in how modes of spectatorship might be usefully understood and theorised in the context of an increasingly mediatised performance and creative arts environment. I have published a number of books, book chapters and journal articles from my research.
