The Project is funded by Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) under the auspice of a collaborative network of universities in the UK (Goldsmiths, University of London), Germany (Humboldt University), Poland (Jagiellonian University) and Switzerland (University of Basel).

Her thesis was entitled: The Making of an AIDS archive: an account of expertise, inter/disciplinarity, and the process of researching and considered the various forms of expertise employed and fostered in the course of creating an archive of the UK HIV/AIDS epidemic.
