Postgraduate supervision

I have supervised nine PhD students to successful completion, and am currently supervising five. The vast majority of projects have been practice-led, and a number cross-disciplinary (for example, with Film and Art). They focus predominantly on theatre and performance in relation to the following themes: politics and identity; storytelling, autobiography and archives; neurodiversity, disability and mental health; migration and forced displacement; hybrid-media practice, intermediality and adaptation; post-conflict and post-memory; tangible and intangible cultural heritage.


I have taught on and convened a range of BA and MA modules including:

  • World Theatres
  • Practical Option: Theatre
  • Representing Conflict on Stage and Screen
