She plays with ensembles such as the English Concert, I Fagiolini and Solomon’s Knot and for the last 4 years has been the concert master of the English Touring Opera’s period orchestra.

In 2021 she was associate music director and lead violinist for a touring dance show with Shobana Jeyasingh Dance with music spanning from Monteverdi through to a brand-new commission by Syrian composer, Kareem Roustom which explored Maqams and rhythms from the Arabic folk tradition interwoven with electronic soundscapes.

Another recent highlight was co-directing for an onstage production of Purcell’s Fairy Queen at Longborough Opera which featured Celtic and Scandinavian folk music through to improvised psychedelic minimalism. She is a sought-after tutor and facilitates workshops at Junior Guildhall School of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Cambridge University and Pro Corda.
