My thesis is 'Confronting canonicity and promoting diversity: Gender and contemporary concert programming'. This research is in collaboration with the Donne Foundation, supervised by Drs Laura Hamer and Manuella Blackburn, and seeks to create an evidence base on gender disparity within contemporary classical-music concert programming with the aim of realising effective strategies and pathways for the programming of diverse women composers within international orchestral and ensemble concerts.
I am also a professional opera singer with a background in performance. I've previously studied at King's College London and University of Leeds. My research interests include gender, intersectionality, performance, verismo opera, and music theatre.
