I am a PhD researcher, lecturer, cultural writer and print designer. My professional practice as a print and textile designer across luxury and high street fashion and interior companies enables me to view the objects of my research through the specific lens of making. I am working as a Visiting Lecturer in the History of Design department at the RCA/V&A (London, UK), as a co-convenor on an MA Research Group module on ‘COVIDISM’, and as an Associate Lecturer in the Cultural Studies - BA Fashion, Textile and Jewellery programme at Central Saint Martins, University of London (London, UK).

I am currently a London Arts & Humanities Partnership (LAHP) recipient for my PhD work. I have also been assisted from three separate funding awards by the Design History Society (DHS), including a Student Travel Award (2018), Outreach & Events Grant (2019) and a Conference Bursary (2019) for the presentation of my work and attendance at the annual DHS conference. I have been nominated for an ELLE Decoration Best British Design Award (2013). I was the recipient of the Norman Jewison Fellowship for post-graduate study (2008). 

My BA (Honours) was rewarded by the University of Toronto (2008), with specialism in Cinema Studies, and my MA in Digital Media from Goldsmiths College, University of London (2009). I have worked at Alexander McQueen, Ellery, Peter Pilotto, Topshop, an emerging sustainable brand, Uri and as a costume assistant on The Favourite (2018). My interests include postcolonial and decolonial theories, feminist histories, East Asian design and identities.
