Her research focuses on movement-based performance practices and on strategies for recreating, reimaging and reusing cultural heritage. Her research has been awarded competitive research funding including an NUI (National University of Ireland) Denis Phelan Scholarship and an NUI Travelling Studentship in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
Currently, she is working on an EU funded research project entitled 'Kaleidoscope - 1950s in Europe'.
