Research Interests

Research interests and expertise

My research interests concern embodied feminist methodologies across creative practice. My practice-based PhD explored situated practice in relation to techno-scientific logic, specifically aerial images and military drone surveillance. It proposed a relational position, drawing on fictioning, feminist science and technology studies, new materialism and posthumanism.
