I am a dance researcher and educator, specialising in inclusive dance practice and work as Assistant Professor of Dance Studies at the Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE) at Coventry University.
In 2020 I completed my PhD at C-DaRE and my AHRC-funded research focused on photography-based interventional approaches that sought to change public perceptions about disabled people who dance.
My recent postdoctoral research explored disabled dancers’ lived experience of remote working and the impact of COVID-19. Presently, I am working on a BBC and AHRC funded project that explores inclusion and representation in Strictly Come Dancing. I am Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Officer for Dance HE and Newsletter Editor for the Society for Dance Research. I am also Editorial Manager for the Journal of Dance and Somatic Practices.
