Research interests

  • My Leverhulme Research Fellowship artist-in-residency will investigate the creative potential of techniques / methods used by geoscientists (such as soil-profile peeling and drillcore collection) to create a series of multi-media ‘art/efacts’ to enhance public awareness regarding issues of climate change and landscape preservation.
