Overview, Research Techniques:

 

  • I use a range of bespoke creative research methodologies to ensure research processes are inclusive, enriching and collaborative experiences.  

  • I have published and currently lecture BA and MA students about real-world research techniques, ethical research practices and culturally appropriate research designs and delivery.

 

  • My Doctorate research developed a range techniques and approaches for research with 'hard-to-reach' and marginalised groups. Many of these were developed in partnership with residential care communities and within estate-based settings. 

  • Much of the research I am commissioned to undertake explores the  efficacy of arts-based interventions within community and institutional care settings.

  • I can produce a number of research outputs including digital media resources, reports, installations, presentations, films and exhibitions.
