Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently researching the connection between digital media and print literature in America from the 1990s to present day. I work primarily with texts by David Foster Wallace, Jennifer Egan, Carmen Maria Machado, Bret Easton Ellis and Mark Z. Danielewski - but this list continues to grow. My work is focused on the tensions between medium and content, and my research is embedded within critical discourse from Martin Heidegger to N. Katherine Hayles.

Prior to Bristol, I completed my BA(Hons) and MA degrees at the University of Exeter, where critical theory formed a large part of my work. Previous research projects have included a history of literary responses to non-normative sexualities, work on the impact of pornography censorship online and research into the binaries prevalant within digital discourse.


I currently teach on the second year unit 'Arts in the Age of Data'.
