I am an image-maker, researcher and educator working between Finland and Ireland. My photographic work centres around the role of images in relationships of power in society, often with a focus on urban space. I do extensive academic research with my projects which is supported by an ethnographic methodology that helps put the images I make into context. I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Helsinki in Environmental Sciences. My research work centres around intersections of aesthetics, urban space, human geography, and economics and how these are mediated through digital visualising technologies such as smart phones and surveillance systems. I hold a practice-led Masters by Research and a qualification in Visual Education from the Institute of Art, Design and Technology Dún Laoghaire. I currently teach photography courses at the Espoo Adult Education Centre in Tapiola and while residing in Ireland taught photography at institutes such as the Gallery of Photography, Dún Laoghaire Further Education Institute and the Institute of Art, Design and Technology Dún Laoghaire in Dublin.
