I am an architectural researcher and designer with a focus on practice-led research and human experience in environments of care. My ongoing doctoral research at the Welsh School of Architecture investigates co-production and the role of architectural design in environments of in-patient palliative care to instigate a multi-disciplinary dialogue between the architecture of hospice environments and sociological studies of palliative care and the terminally ill.
With a background in architectural design, I completed my Part I training at Central Saint Martins in London graduating with 1st Class Honours and a RIBA London award for Best Student Project, followed by several years in practice at award-winning practices in Cambridge and Bristol. I joined the Welsh School of Architecture for my Part II, graduating with a 1st Class Honours and the Wyn Thomas Award for Best Response to Site & Context.
I subsequently returned to the Welsh School to undertake my PhD under the supervision of Dr Sam Clark, Welsh School of Architecture and Dr Sally Anstey, School of Healthcare Sciences. I am an active early career researcher presenting at international conferences and have been published in the BMJ’s Medical Humanities Journal. From March 2020 I will take up an appointment as Lecturer in Architecture at UWE, University of the West of England.
