I am an Associate Lecturer on the MRes Art: Theory and Philosophy course at Central Saint Martins and a member of the Art and Philosophy research group at CSM Research. I hold a doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Dundee (2013). Previously, I worked as a professional sound editor across the film and TV industries in London and New York. I still teach a masterclass in sound design for the moving image on an ad hoc basis. In 2015 I collaborated with the Doctoral Platform at CSM to co-create The Art of Questioning seminar series for doctoral researchers across the college.
I co-edited the book Nancy and Visual Culture published by Edinburgh University Press in 2016. My forthcoming publications include an article in peer-reviewed journal, Countertext, entitled 'This is what climate change looks like: McKenzie Wark's post-literary critique of climate fiction gives equal value to participation', and a chapter contribution in Women and Water in Global fiction: Feminisms and Gender (Routledge 2022) on the work of author Banana Yoshimoto.
My current postgraduate teaching is fully inclusive, with an emphasis on hybrid learning and student support. My seminars, under the overarching theme of ‘Philosophy for Future’, generate discussions around climate justice, intersectionality, colonialism, and the apocalypse, using references to contemporary literature and visual culture. I advise second year MRes students on their dissertations, and I am happy to discuss doctoral supervision in the areas of decolonial philosophy, film philosophy, moving image, post-literary, or sonic arts.
