I am researcher with a specialism in sonic studies and sensory ethnography. My PhD research was a sonic study of the Welsh Streets in Liverpool employing sound recording and composition as an ethnographic tool. My research interests have centred around sonic place making and listening cultures in the home, particular focussing on sound control and power My work has also included compositions and sound installations focussed around community sound and memories. My work has enabled me to work with cultural organisations including the Halle Orchestra, Foundation of Art and Creative Technology, Horsfall, Manchester City Art Gallery. Most recently my research has focussed upon the importance of sound and music in ageing.
