Doctoral Researcher  interested in Queer History, museums and archives

My background is in Anthropology and History (BA) and Contemporary History and Politics (MA). My current research focuses on alternative forms of historical work of knowledge production taking place in Queer history groups across Brighton and London. Outside of my research I work as an educator in schools, community projects and museums. I like good music, bad TV and working on mycelial Zine 'Mush-Rooms'.


Postgraduate researcher in Creative and Critical Writing

My research centres around developing a neuroqueer psychogeography, neuroqueer experience of urban space and neuroqueerness in contemporary Japanese literature/art. I hold an MA in Japanese Studies from SOAS, a PGdip in Theatre Costume from RADA and have worked as a theatrical costume maker for many years. I am also a novelist, represented by the Elise Dillsworth Agency.
