My background is originally in philosophy, with specific interests in political philosophy, phenomenology and challenging preconceptions towards the commodification of the body in sex work. To expand my ability to apply theoretical frameworks to modern day problems, I undertook an MSc in Computer Science, completing my thesis within Open Lab. As part of my Centre for Doctoral Training MRes, I conducted a study on how we can configure environments and implement technologies that encourage individuals to speak more openly about their experiences of bullying and harassment in the workplace.

This was for the purpose of implementing bespoke, data-driven discussion groups, working towards fostering constructive working environments.

My current research interest is in the way in which digital technologies can be used to enhance the capabilities of individuals in intimate partner abuse situations and exploring alternative ways to provide and access third-sector digital service provision. I also have broader research interests in social justice and feminisms.

When I’m away from the Lab, I enjoy my time spent at Tyneside cinema, mixing up Thai cuisine, indie games and hiking up mountains.
