BA (Hons), University of Cambridge; MA, University of York; PhD, University of East Anglia
I joined the University of Nottingham in 2019 in the newly formed Applied English team, creating and delivering innovative distance learning programmes with a focus on literature. Before that I was a Lecturer in English Literature at Middlesex University London, and Assistant Professor in English Literature at the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus. I have also taught at Nottingham Trent University, worked in PhD administration at Loughborough University, widening participation at the University of Warwick, and conference and events organisation at the University of Oxford.
My research is in global Gothic, fairy tale and contemporary literature, and particularly the relationships between these fields: my monograph on The Contemporary Gothic Fairy Tale considers the deployment of Gothicised fairy tales to critique contemporary sociopolitical discourses, and I am currently editing a special issue of Gothic Studies on Gothic Folklore and Fairy Tale. I am co-editing an essay collection, Nation and Fascination: Folklore in Britain and Ireland, and writing book chapters on folkloric eco-Gothic and Malaysian Gothic. I have also published on the representation of alchemy in contemporary fiction, wine in Romantic poetry, and contemporary fairy tale fiction.
I have published poetry in The Cadaverine, InPrint, The Apple Anthology, Eyewear Press's Best New British and Irish Poets 2018, and short fiction in Cut the Clouds. I have been shortlisted for the Overton Prize, Highly Commended in the Aurora Competition, and was the runner up in the 2017 Melita Hume Prize for a first full poetry collection for Your Brain Cells Sing When They Die, which will be published by Eyewear in 2020.
