Her doctoral research proposed the use of dance and somatic movement practices, motion capture and virtual reality (VR) for creating illness narratives about bipolar disorder.

She was also a digital archivist/humanist/librarian from 2011-2016 with a focus on digital dance preservation. Most recently she has started to investigate the impact of machine learning and virtual worlds on human-machine relationships.
