I'm a graduate of Essex and Cambridge, and I've been teaching at Essex since 2015.
I work in the field of U.S. poetry, and I'm particularly focussed around contemporary poetry, The Western (and writings from the American South-West), and intersectional Marxist-Feminist criticism.
I am always happy to answer queries from current and prospective students.
I welcome applications for doctoral students working in any of these fields, and in U.S. literature more broadly.
I hold a PhD from the University of Essex. My thesis, which considered the relationship between poetry and place in modern and contemporary U.S. poetry, was supervised by Professor Richard Gray and Professor Peter Hulme.
My MA in Wlid Writing: Literature and Environmental Science is also from Essex, and I graduated in 2011.
I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Cambridge, graduating with BA in English in 2008.
