Research

My research focuses on the literary manuscripts of Ted Hughes tracing the development of his composition techniques throughout his career, arguing that his self-conscious experimentation with the processes by which he wrote affected the style and subject matter of his work.

Biography

I joined Cardiff University as a Lecturer in English Literature in September 2013, after receiving my PhD (2013) from the University of Exeter.

At Cardiff this year I am teaching undergraduate option modules on ‘Modernist Fictions’, ‘Post 1945 American Novel’ and ‘Twentieth Century fiction in the British Isles’. I am also teaching the MA Modernism module.
