I am a doctoral music student at the University of Bristol under the supervision of Dr Guido Heldt and Dr Angela Piccini.

My PhD project explores music in the BBC documentary series Arena – on the means by which Arena constructs ideas about music, and on the uses the series itself makes of music.

I have previously studied at Royal Holloway,  University of London and at the University of Cambridge, where I completed a master’s thesis on jazz in la nouvelle vague with Dr Sam Barrett.

I also play the trumpet in and around the South West. 🎺
