My Research

I’m currently completing a PhD in Creative and Critical Writing, funded through the SWWDTP, with co-supervision from Cardiff University and Aberystwyth University. My thesis examines the use of ekphrastic poetry as a tool for visitor engagement in art museums, and I’m working with National Museum Wales to investigate the practical implications of this.

I am interested in a wide range of research areas across a variety of disciplines, from contemporary poetry and historical fiction to museum interpretation and learning theory, as well as the interactions between creative and critical practice. I have an MA in Museum Studies and an MA in Creative Writing. You can find more details about my academic experience here.
