About Me

I am a performance and media scholar with a specific interest in boxing and identity. My research spans women's boxing in Wales - past, present and future - gender and performance in boxing, and the role of boxing in physical and visual cultures more broadly. I am a course leader and senior lecturer for the BA (Hons) Performance and Media degree where my role explores collaborative and critically focused approaches to pedagogy.
