My research engages with new-materialist perspectives and pays particular focus to human-environment relations. I am interested in the ways we might experiment with and transform our connections with the material world, so that they are not restricted by specific and predetermined sets of human knowledge. I intend to explore this interest with practices of being outside, particularly performative and experimental mobilities that aim at moving us away from human oriented engagements in the world and towards more open modes of becoming.
