As a performer, she has given solo and chamber music recitals, and was guest artist at the American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates.

Emily’s research work focuses on the wellbeing of musicians, looking specifically at interventions for Music Performance Anxiety.

    Saori Ogura is a PhD student, a Public Scholar and a Liu Scholar, whose works combine ecological, arts-based and occupational science perspectives. She has won prizes for her drawings and photography, particularly for her project documenting her time living in Sikkim and Darjeeling in India’s Eastern Himalayas. Her doctoral research explores meaning around traditional practices, especially the drought-tolerant small grains cultivation and associated knowledge for the Shona Indigenous community in Mazvihwa, Zimbabwe.
