Biography

I completed my PhD at Queen Mary, University of London in 2017. I also hold a BA in Media Arts at Royal Holloway, PGCE in post-compulsory education at the Institute of Education MA in Film Studies (by independent research) at De Montfort University and PGCERT in Higher Education from the University of Sussex. 

I mostly work at the intersection of film-philosophy, digital media and memory studies, and my research interests include:

  • the relationship between film and digital media, and contested memories and conflict, particularly in relation to memorial museums and spaces
  • apocalyptical thought in philosophy, theology and cinema
  • animation 
  • the philosophy of Georges Didi-Huberman, Giorgio Agamben, and Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari

I am currently working on:

  • an edited collection and platform called Memorial Museums in the Digital Age
  • a research monograph Digital Holocaust Memory: Museums and Archives for the Future
  • a travelling cinema for older people in the London borough of Lewisham 

I am a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and the Higher Education Association.

In my spare time I am a volunteer programmer at Deptford Cinema - an award-winning co-operative community cinema project bringing global films to local people.
