Current research

Since October 2013 I have been a PhD researcher in the Department of Geography at the University of Sheffield.

My research uses spatial microsimulation to examine health resilience and health inequalities at small–area geographies in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

I am supervised by Dimitris Ballas and Liddy Goyder.

I am funded by a scholarship from Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council Public Health and am part of the Building Economies and Resilient Societies (BEARS) network.

Photography

My exhibition at Sheffield's Migration Matters Festival, 2016

Photography has been a hobby of mine for many years now, but it’s only recently that I’ve learned that good photography is about making images, rather than taking pictures. The difference is deciding beforehand how your image will look, then using your camera and equipment to make that image happen. The alternative is taking pictures and hoping one or two come out ok.

I enjoy photography both for its inherent creativity, as well as the technical nature of using a camera. I’m particularly partial to portraiture and street photography.

I’ve exhibited my work at local photography festivals and arts organisations, including Sheffield’s Migration Matters Festival 2016 and the first BroughamPhotoFest at Brougham Hall.
