Graduate Research Fellow for BSL, Deaf Studies and Linguistics, York St John University
I am profoundly Deaf was born to Jamaican parents in London. I made my debut on BBC’s See Hear – Black Deaf Special (1992) and appeared on numerous TV programmes such as BSL Zone’s award-winning Double Discrimination documentary (2014) and my Close-Up interview from also BSL Zone (2018) about my lived experience through my personal journey.
I was a representative for Black Deaf UK (BDUK), a Black Deaf led organisation which was inspired by Black Lives Matter (BLM) representing British Black Deaf people from African and Caribbean family backgrounds. After a long and through discussion with some Black Deaf people, the organisation was set up in July 2020 to challenge the societal attitudes towards racism and audism and educate, empower and liberate Black Deaf people living in the UK.
Previously, I worked as a community support worker for Deaf Adult Community Team, (DACT), an NHS specialist community mental health service working with Deaf people with mental health issues in Springfield Hospital, London. In 2018, I gave a presentation about the history of BSL (British Sign Language) in colonial Jamaica to celebrate 70 years of Windrush and the NHS.
I have recently been voted as one of the 50 nominees for Signature’s Hall of Fame for my long contribution to British Black Deaf Community.
I was graduated MA in Culture, Diaspora, Ethnicity from Birkbeck College, University of London from Oct 2012 to Sep 2014. My dissertation title was ‘Race’, Deafness and Inequality in Higher Education’ focusing how Black Deaf students navigate themselves in the world of higher education.
I am now working as a Graduate Research Fellow (part graduate teaching assistant and part student researcher) for BSL, Deaf Studies and Linguistics under the School of Education, Languages and Psychology in York St. John University.
I now teach Deaf Cultures and Accelerated BSL (British Sign Language) Level 1, and I am currently working on my PhD thesis focusing on Black Deaf people’s experiences about the dual oppression of racism and audism based on intersectionality, using interview and autoethnography methods.
I am Director of the MSc in Investment Analysis at the University of Stirling and a Visiting Professor at the University of Gdansk.
My most recent work has been in the following areas: earnings management around IPOs, the share price reaction to stock dividend announcements, the impact of board gender diversity on firm valuation, the value of ‘comply or explain' corporate governance disclosures and the financial consequences of CSR.

UKSA Mars Science Fellow, Department of Physics, University of Oxford
I am working on data analysis for the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter Atmospheric Chemistry Suite. My objective is to measure high quality vertical profiles of gases present in the atmosphere of Mars, to search for undetected species, such methane and other organics, and chlorine- or sulphur-bearing molecules. I use these results to help understand the photochemistry, dynamics, and climatology of Mars.
I have always been fascinated by the role and impact science has in society. This extends beyond the obvious utility of science - technology, to the communication and influence it has on how we view ourselves and our universe, both in the past and our ever changing present. The other side of that is my current research interest - what makes science different to other forms of knowledge? Seems reasonable for someone who studied physics - after growing up with a telescope, geology pick and a chemistry set and wanting to become an astronaut.
Meanwhile I manage engagements between the University (of Melbourne) and Industry and Government bodies. For more than 20 years I worked as a research scientist in both academia (RMIT University & Salford University) and industry (Amcor Research & Technology Centre).
As well as holding an ARC Queen Elizabeth II Fellow, I held fellowships and grants from the UK Ministry of Defense (Royal Signals & Radar Establishment, Malvern), the UK Science and Engineering Research Council and the Australian Research Council. I have also worked in corporate, strategy, marketing and consulting roles.
A lapsed triathlete I have been known to race and enjoy the occasional ultra trail-run.
