I'm a psychology post-doctoral researcher and occasional lecturer.

My research is at the interface of health (typically chronic conditions), disability, assistive technology and enablement, cognitive functioning, & psycho-social processes and outcomes.

PhD in neuropsychological functioning and prosthetic and psychosocial rehabilitation outcomes in people with lower limb amputations.

I direct theatre, and occasionally I also write (badly, and mostly to exorcise the demons).

Currently directing Mental Magpie's A Surprise in Scene and Heard 2020.


Other interests: politics (non-authoritarian socialist, social democratic, green), running, and, uh, plants. :)
