I have recently completed a PhD, which I have been undertaking for the past eight years. This project is an investigation into the ways that film-making can help to develop the social communication skills of autistic children. At its heart, what the research does is demonstrate how the process of making films can empower, encourage self-expression in and, ultimately, transform the lives of children with autism.
I also conduct research on a freelance basis, usually focusing on various aspects of neurodiversity and film. Past clients have included Ffilm Cymru Wales and Film Hub Wales.
