Research interests

I am doing a practice based PhD exploring documentary practice and gender. My first year’s project ‘The Stronger Experiment’ exploring how patriarchal structures affect the characters seen on the screen has been presented as a 4 video channel installation at the Los Angeles Film & Video Poetry Symposium (2020). I am now working on my thesis project exploring how to subvert the social construct of the pregnant experience on the screen.
