Welcome

 

Hello there…

Since March 2024 I am the Prospects Researcher and Grants Writer at the British Deaf Association part time until September.

I am also working as a consultant for the Greater London Authority, looking at policy recommendations to meet the needs and experiences of Deaf Migrants in London, part time until September. 

I am an Associate at University College London until December 2025.

Until December 2023 I was a Research Fellow at University College London, looking at Visual Communication and Reading Development in Deaf Children.  I have also worked on a small UCL funded project on Deaf Migrants and their needs in London. I have also worked on a small UCL funded project with Deaf LGBTQ+ people (especially Deaf Rainbow UK) on development of British Sign Language for emerging new glossary.

I was the Executive Director (maternity cover) for Deafinitely Theatre, a National Portfolio Organisation funded by Arts Council England. 

I worked on a short term contract with Consortium, looking at more than 400 LGBT+ groups’ experiences across Intersectionality/ies (Older people, Women, People with Disabilities and People of Colour).

I travelled South America for 8 months in 2018 and have written a book about this experience.

I was the Deputy Director for Children, Young People and Partnerships at the National Deaf Children’s Society (2007-2018). 

Between 2018 and 2021, I was the Chair of Deaf Rainbow UK, a charity for Deaf people who are also LGBTQ+.

I completed my PhD at the University of Sheffield back in 2002, which looked at social-cognitive development.

You can find my full CV here.

With best wishes
