I am an AHRC-funded PhD student based at the University of Nottingham and as part of the Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership.

I have research interests in contemporary British fiction, particularly literature with a political focus. I am currently writing a chapter on the post-industrial North and Brexit fiction. For my full PhD proposal, view my ‘Research’ page.

Outside of the thesis, I edit Nottingham’s postgraduate-led Journal of Languages, Texts, and Society and coordinate the Landscape, Space, and Place Research Group. I am also a Postgraduate Representative for the British Association of Contemporary Literary Studies and Managing Editor of its associate journal, Alluvium.

I am passionate about teaching and taught in secondary education prior to starting my doctoral studies. I currently teach on the undergraduate English Literature programme at the University of Leicester and as a PhD Tutor for The Brilliant Club, a charity which aims to widen access to highly-selective universities for talented pupils from non-selective state schools.
