Media Work

I have extensive experience of working with broadcast, digital and print media, grounded in a strong belief that for academic work to have a resonance and use for others that we scholars need to get it ‘out there’. I welcome media enquiries, either to participate directly or provide background information on all topics connected to my areas of interest and expertise.
