About me

As a designer and researcher, I am most interested in the way in which architecture and our built environment can support models of care, in particular end of life and palliative care. My ongoing doctoral studies - “Designing towards a ‘good death’” – employs ethnography and auto-ethnography to explore the multiple narratives of caregiving at end of life. My research seeks to understand the significance and role of architectural design in multi-disciplinary co-production of the in-patient hospice building and how this can inform future design practice considering potential policy and infrastructural change within palliative care provision in Wales and the UK.


I hold a BA(Hons) in Architecture, Spaces and Objects from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, for which I was awarded a RIBA London prize. I continued my architectural education at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University studying on their Master of Architecture programme, graduating with the Wyn Thomas Prize for best response to site and context for my thesis that explored the notion and concepts of slow living in a rural community of north-east Wales.


 Prior to joining UWE I worked at several award-winning practices in Cambridge and Bristol working on a range of scales and projects and was a Tutor across various design and research modules at the Welsh School of Architecture.

Area of expertise

Architecture for end-of-life care, ethnography, person-centred design
