Welcome to my website, I'm glad you could make it! My research examines the effects of engaging with fictional worlds on cognition, empathy and behaviour. My background is in the performing arts and I also work as a science communicator, actor and writer, as well as teaching, applied arts and psychology in occupational settings. This takes me into a range of contexts, including schools and HE, criminal justice, clinical and social care settings. On this site you'll find info about research, presentations, publications, performances, blog and getting in touch. Thanks for dropping by.
