Biography

I am a lecturer and researcher in media, gender and queer studies. My monograph Screening Queer Memory: LGBTQ Pasts in Contemporary Film and Television is the first academic book to examine how LGBTQ memory is shaped through film and television, thus representing a highly-significant contribution to the fields of media, memory and queer studies. I have also published a number of works on subjects including intersectionality, the history of queer representation, and LGBTQ migration in contemporary television.

Prior to joining the University of Nottingham, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Edinburgh's Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, where my research analysed representations of queer memory in international cinema. This work built on my doctoral research at Northumbria University, where I developed my examination of LGBTQ memory in the context of American and British television and film. Prior to my PhD, I also obtained a double-major MA in Philosophy and English Language and Literature at the University of Zagreb.

I am the recipient of numerous grants in the field of media studies, including the IASH postdoctoral fellowship grant and a fully-funded doctoral fellowship from Northumbria University, as well other grants from institutions such as the Edinburgh Futures Institute, GenderED, the Northumbria Humanities Institute, and the Contemporary Women's Writing Association (UK). In the last five years, I have organised three international academic conferences, an Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded symposium, a film series and individual film screenings. I am also co-chair of the European Network for Cinema and Media Studies (NECS) Queer and Feminist Workgroup.

Expertise Summary

My research expertise lies at the intersection of film and television studies, queer theory, and gender studies. My monograph Screening Queer Memory: LGBTQ Pasts in Contemporary Film and Television (Bloomsbury, 2021) examines how queer memory has been represented in and created by contemporary on-screen representation. This book is the first academic monograph to present a sustained examination of how queer memory is shaped by television and film. I have also published on different subjects including intersectionality, queer migration and the history of queer television, with my work appearing in journals such as Feminist Media Studies and Critical Studies in Television, as well as in The Oxford Encyclopaedia of Queer Studies and Communication and The International Encyclopaedia of Gender, Media and Communication.
