Her studio practice draws on the techniques and processes of experimentation of early 20th century radio-craft culture. She has presented at Elektra Festival (CA), Modern Art Oxford (UK), WRO Media Art Biennale (PL), CTM Festival (DE) and LEAP Berlin. She was nominated for the Marler European Sound Art Award (DE) and awarded an International Production Stipend from The Edith-Russ-Haus (DE).
