Conferences and Publications
I am an artist researcher who completed an AHRC funded practice-led PhD at Northumbria University in 2018. My thesis title is: ‘The concept of noise in medical visualisations perceived through a contemporary drawing practice’. I am a member of CNoS (The Cultural Negotiation of Science), a Northumbria University fine art research group challenging the use of art as instrumental in science.
