I am a researcher, curator and writer, particularly interested in Chinese art and visual culture, and the material cultures of communism and socialism.
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.
