Research overview

My areas of expertise are visual methods of research and photographic practices. I have worked ethnographically with transnational families and explored how they incorporate photography in everyday routines, addressing media practices in the contexts of migration, kinship and intimacy. My latest research inquires into the performativity of images in the context of activism, online and offline. I am an advocate of interdisciplinary, participatory and practice-based research.


Research Interests

I am interested in supervising PhD projects, particularly practice-led ones, exploring any of the following research interests in isolation or combined: photography (especially photographic practices), phatic communication, affordances, performativity and visual (digital) practices/cultures, migration, regimes of visuality/invisibility, Visual Sociology, Visual Research Methods, visual/digital/media and intimacy/kinship, affect theory, affective media practices.

External PhD Supervision

Isilda Almeida-Harvey, "Drones for heritage communication and audience development", SEAHA Doctoral Training Centre and University of Brighton. Co-supervised with Dr. Olu Jenzen, Dr. Lara Perry, and Dr. Frauke Behrendt.
