She is part of the Bespoke project with Dr Jon Rogers, Digital Products, University of Dundee.

Alicia has submitted her DPhil in social anthropology at Oxford entitled: Cinema Citizens?  Young People, Filmmaking and Civic Engagement in London. This has involved, in her own words, an “in-depth ethnography of media production to examine discourses of ‘citizenship’ in youth filmmaking projects within the context of media representations of youth, UK-government youth policy and the political economy of funding”. She has also held various consulting, lecturing and facilitation roles with film-making organisations and events such as the British Film Institute, Oxford Academy of Documentary Film, Royal Anthropological Institute Film Festival, The BFI London Film Festival, The Roundhouse, and FilmAid International.
