She has a particular passion for ensemble playing and was a grateful recipient of the University Instrumental Award throughout her studies at Cambridge, which allowed her piano trio, the Aether Trio, to receive regular coaching. She also enjoys collaborating with singers, and was delighted to receive the Accompanist Prize at the Clare College Song Competition in March 2017.
