Research and Teaching Interests

Drawing on literary and critical research, contemplative dance practices and clinical massage experience, my doctoral project is investigating the ways in which hybrid artistic forms can generate new modes of conveying stories of the body along the spectrum of sickness and health.

I'm particularly interested in the intersections of visual and performing arts, experimental literature, narrative studies and bioethics.
