Profile summary

Professional biography

I have previously studied architecture and art history at the University of Cambridge and The Open University respectively. Starting my career at a digital agency, I have worked in digital roles at Imperial War Museums and the National Portrait Gallery.

Research interests

My research focuses on experiential accounts of portrait-sittings, which offer insights into the social and transactional nature of portraiture. It uses methods from the digital humanities and knowledge representation to address this art-historical subject. The project will explore how accounts of portrait-sittings, represented in a structured way, might more effectively be used to enhance knowledge and understanding of British portrait production in the period 1900-1950: one of great social and cultural change.
