Personal profile

Biography

I have been Lecturer in Ceramics at Belfast School of Art since January 2017. My AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award project (2010-14) was based jointly at the University of Sunderland and the Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens (SMWG). I was an AHRC Cultural Engagement Fellow at the same institution in 2016 and an AHRC International Placement Scheme Visiting Scholar at the National Museum of Ethnology, Japan, in 2013. 

Research Interests

My practice-led ceramics research is concerned with three interrelated strands of enquiry which can be summarised as follows: (a) artistic approaches to archives and museum collections with an emphasis on community engagement and participation; (b) an exploration of the relationship between artistic and archaeological research methodologies; and, (c) an interest in the role clay, ceramics and grassroots making can play in encouraging wellbeing.
