AHRC/BBC New Generation Thinkers

In 2019 I was chosen as one of ten AHRC/BBC New Generation Thinkers, who are given the opportunity to present their research to wider audiences.

The 2019 cohort was launched at the Sage Gateshead Festival on 30th March 2019. Our introductory episode of Free Thinking was broadcast on 25th April 2019 and can be found here.

Links to other programmes I've made as a New Generation Thinker can be found below.
