Lecturer in England, United Kingdom
I specialise in curating immersive learning environments that embrace art-science inquiry and community-led initiatives concerning social and environmental change. My public experiments have been covered by The Guardian, New York Times, Daily Mail, Lancet and Al-Jazheera.
As a Lecturer at The University of Salford, I teach on our MSc Science Communication & Future Media as part of The Scicomm Space.
As a creative consultant to Creative Partnerships, I nurtured creative approaches to science in schools, mentoring artists and teachers to collaborate and champion creativity across the curriculum. Within higher education and working with museums and NGOs, I advised and led on social change initiatives, Manchester Beacon, Engage, Catalyst & Turing's Sunflowers.
For three years I have curated DocFest Exchange, a public platform of art-science talks, events and alternate reality exhibits at the heart of Sheffield International Documentary Festival.
I've benefited from fellowships from Wellcome and Jerwood/ Manchester International Festival. This year I was in residence at The Stuart Hall Library with curator Bianca Manu and artist, Caroline Ward.
