PhD Student

Research Subject and Interests

My PhD research looks specifically at the relationship between Dance and Trauma Studies, considering how we respond creatively to socially traumatic events, with a specific interest in 9/11 and the works created around this event. As part of my research I will be taking a two-month trip to New York to collect data which will help develop and inform my research.
