Areas of expertise My current research interests and practice centre on film and media forms, particularly existing and potential relations between production, distribution and exhibition in response to evolving digital technologies. I have a life-long interest in media histories of both conventional and experimental film forms, with an established record through both publication and creative practice in the fields of in scenography (constructs of space and place) and screen performance.

I have a special interest in developing practice-based approaches to teaching and research in film and screen media in both conventional and experimental film forms, and have served as an consultant, evaluator and examiner for film schools in the UK and Europe.
