My research and teaching interests range broadly across medieval and early modern literature, critical theory, visual culture, and the history of media and technology.

I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Faculty of English, University of Oxford (2017-21) and Lecturer in English at Mansfield College (2021-22). I currently work at Sheffield College and as a tutor for CityLit and the Workers’ Educational Association.

I was contributing editor of the Glasgow Review of Books and have contributed to MAP Magazine, The Trouble, the LRB and the LRB Blog, the History Workshop Blog, and the British Library Discovering Literature resource.
