Pamela's research includes: visual and linguistic representations of the experience of home and public space; interior space and memory; storytelling and archiving; symbolism and the everyday lived experience; autobiography; embodied communication; Gestalt psychology in design; gender and language; narrative design.

Her practice-led research foregrounds self-reflection, embodied creative processes and sense-making in design with the aim to foster individual empowerment. She explores through materiality, visual storytelling and documentation the capacity to influence perceptions and behaviour.

Her research draws from social science fields and applies design thinking and visual literacy toward new knowledge in the visualisation of memories, the everyday lived experience and the curation of a message that synthesises new connections and constructs new ways of seeing.

Her design explores the nuances of the everyday and the way multiple perceptions of space capture and enact these experiences. Through this, she has developed ways of working with photo images, paper cutting, extraction, and language in an effort to share and elicit both personal and interpersonal experiences.
