    Research Interests

    Kathryn's research interests span inclusive dance, dance in education and exploring the value and impact of dance. The focus of her PhD research was on photography-based interventions located within the intersection between dance and disability, following on from an evaluation of People Dancing’s '11 Million Reasons to Dance’ project. Currently, Kathryn's postdoctoral research explores the lived experience of isolated working for disabled dance artists, considering modes of communication, use of technology and change in working practices in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    In addition, Kathryn is enthusiastic about transdisciplinary research and has worked for the Centre for Computational Science and Mathematical Modelling on the Energy REV project, exploring stakeholder perspectives on Energy, AI and Ethics. Kathryn is one of the project team members for Gap_E[thics], which seeks to explore the concept, understanding and practice of ethics in technological from different disciplinary perspectives.
