Research overview

Prior to joining Lancaster University I spent 15 years as a practicing artist with an emphasis on participatory, enquiry led projects typically investigating people and place (how we perceive our surroundings; how we move through our surroundings; how we interact with our surroundings...).

Working in the area of Art & Mobilities, I'm currently researching the conversation spaces around under-represented and marginalised experiences of cycling. In particular I'm interested in the interactions that come from engaging with the materiality of cycle repair in communal, convivial settings.

I am developing bike hub activities for women/trans/non-binary people as a site for questioning what happens when you put other types of velomobilites centre stage (www.everydaysuperpowers.org.uk) and am also investigating the Raleigh Wisp mixte frame bicycle of the mid 1980s as a lens through which to explore how assemblages of bike, body and environment are co-constructed over time.
