Research interests

My main research interests focus on urban change, the exploration of place in relation to ageing, community leadership and resilience. I am also interested in creative research methods such as filmmaking and other audio-visual mediums as a means of co-producing and sharing knowledge. 

For my masters thesis, I worked with a community-led group of older residents living in Hulme, a gentrifying neighbourhood of Manchester, who used creative writing to build resilience and become agents of social change. With my PhD, I hope to explore these themes further and develop an understanding of the processes behind decision-making in cities. I also discuss the role of alternatives modes of governance and ownership to understand how we can build more just, sustainable and diverse cities.
