I am a human geographer focusing on interactions between place and wellbeing, with a particular interest in soundscapes and emplaced sonic practices and experiences. My research utilises qualitative, ethnographic and audio-visual modes of enquiry. I have published widely on topics such as therapeutic landscapes, geographies of sound and everyday mobilities.

I started as an advisor on patient involvement in medical education at the Faculty of Medicine, but my role has been slightly changed to developing education with and around patients. A lot of education is challenge-based and involves the community.

In the extracurricular honours programme at Master’s level, I work with students from diverse backgrounds in terms of experience, personality, field of expertise, gender and nationality. When students dare to be open to other perspectives and truly be vulnerable and reflective, they are able to develop themselves and grow into the future leaders we need.
Academic education often assumes that students already have an open and learning mindset, while this is very much a capability that they need to develop. Especially when students are asked to be vulnerable and embrace feedback on their personal development. Positive Gossiping grants students an opportunity to reflect on their personal development.
