I am a researcher, curator and writer, particularly interested in post-1949 Chinese propaganda and, more broadly, museum representations and the visual cultures of communism and socialism.

This blog and website provides links to my publications (where available) and gives details of my academic activities, as well as a selected curriculum vitae.

I have a background in Asian art history and museum studies, and received my PhD from the University of Leicester in 2010. I have worked in museums as a curator and researcher, and in academia as a lecturer, tutor, researcher and programme manager.

I have worked as a heritage consultant and have been an Honorary Visiting Fellow in the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester. I am currently a University Teacher in the School of the Arts, Loughborough University and an affiliate of King’s College London.
