Transcripts and recordings:
I endeavour to transcribe and record my conference presentations and invited talks to make them more accessible, however these are often of works in progress and unfortunately not easily published. Please contact me by email or on Twitter if you are interested in finding out whether a transcript, written paper, slide deck, video recording or audio recording.
*If you are a researcher, please consider how you can improve your practice to make your work more accessible – this needs to be part of our ongoing commitment to making academia more inclusive.
