My research to date has been varied, but has continuously drawn on both ethnographic techniques and the collaborative production of contemporary art. My PhD research (2013 - 2018, UCL and SOAS) looked at the ways in which international funding was used to sustain and promote contemporary art in Bosnia-Herzegovina as a tool for social transformation. My current practice is two-fold: one stream aims to investigate the experience of Bosnian refugees, and in a second I am looking at the way in which conflict changes and informs the perception of landscape.
