I currently work as a Research Impact Officer for the Faculty of Social Sciences. I'm responsible for supporting impact related activities across the Faculty, including:
- generating and demonstrating impact throughout the research life cycle
- impact in funding applications

- evidencing impact
- developing and writing REF Impact Case Studies
- impact and engagement training
Prior to this role, I was a Fixed-Term Teacher in the Department of Literature, Film, and Theatre Studies, where I completed my PhD in Literature in 2019, and a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Keele University. I'm a literary and intellectual historian specialising in twentieth-century British fiction and political thought. I'm particularly interested in the relationship between the novel, capitalism, and democracy; in women's writing and feminist histories of knowledge; in theories of autonomy and sovereignty; in histories of citizenship and immigration; in transnational writing; and, increasingly, in literatures of migration (esp. in connection with the Balkans).
