I began my position as a Lecturer in Drama at the University of Exeter in 2015. Prior to this I worked at Queen Mary University of London and the University of Leeds. My research is concerned with marginalised spaces, places and peoples. I am especially interested in issues related to class, race and inequality and have published widely on performances set and taking place on council estates. I am currently writing a book on council estate performance, and have recently begun a new project exploring ‘street’ performance culture in London and New York. Outside academia I have worked as a writer, a performer, an applied theatre facilitator and as a housing officer.
