I am  a heritage consultant, researcher, curator and writer, particularly interested in Chinese art and visual culture, the material cultures of communism and socialism.

This blog and website provides links to my publications (where available) and gives details of my academic activities, as well as a selected curriculum vitae.

I have a background in Asian art history and museum studies, and received my PhD from the University of Leicester in 2010. I’ve worked in museums as a curator and researcher, and in academia as a lecturer, tutor, researcher and programme manager.

I work as a consultant on behalf of Tricolor Ltd. and as a University Teacher in the School of the Arts, Loughborough University. I am also an Honorary Visiting Fellow in the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester.
