She is also a keen cellist, composer and improviser, and is currently developing her new solo show with writer Octavia Bright, with the support of Snape Maltings.

She recently completed her Doctorate at the RCM supervised by Nigel Clayton and Amanda Glauert, where she explored her interest in cross-arts practice and concert experience as a pianist. In 2015/2016 she was selected as Gilbert and Eileen Edgar Junior Fellow in Piano Accompaniment at the RCM and young artist for the Park Lane Group.
