I am a Researcher in Jazz Studies based in Birmingham Centre for Cultural and Media Research at Birmingham City University. My PhD thesis explores the cultural politics of jazz on television in Portugal during the right-wing colonialist Estado Novo regime (1956-1974).

My research interests include Jazz Studies and Media Studies, with a particular relationship between jazz and media, and the political and social history of the jazz diaspora during the twentieth century.

I am a Trustee for the National Jazz Archive in the United Kingdom.
