After completing my undergraduate degree in English Literature at the University of Durham, I came to Cardiff in 1995 to read an MA in English Literature, focusing principally on nineteenth-century literature and its engagement with print culture. My postgraduate studies concluded in 2001, with a PhD entitled ‘Jane Austen and the Production of Fiction, 1785–1817’.

Between 2001 and 2004, I was a postdoctoral research associate based in Cardiff's Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research (CEIR), which I co-founded with Professor Peter Garside in 1998. In 2004, I took up a Lectureship in English Literature at Cardiff, followed by promotions to Senior Lecturer (2009) and Reader in Print and Digital Cultures (2013). Since October 2013, I have been the Director of CEIR.

I teach undergraduate modules on the gothic and the nineteenth century, and postgraduate courses on book history and Romanticism. I have supervised MA dissertations on Jane Austen, the gothic and sensation fiction, and am currently supervising doctoral projects on Victorian fiction, literature and science, and the nineteenth-century book trade.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), and member of a number of academic societies, and was elected as the Vice-President of the British Association for Romantic Studies in July 2015. I also sit on a number of editorial boards for journals and scholarly initiatives, as well as regularly peer reviewing submissions to various academic publications. I am co-organiser of Cardiff BookTalk and Cardiff Romanticism and Romanticism Seminar, and sit on the Editorial Board of Cardiff University Press.

My research focuses principally on nineteenth-century literature and its engagement with contemporary print culture. I am also interested in the gothic, book history and digital humanities. I am Director of the Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research at Cardiff, and have developed a number of digital resources, including two databases, a bibliography of fiction 1830–1836 and an online journal.

I have written books and essays on Jane Austen, the gothic, print culture and contemporary fiction. In 2009, I became one of the General Editors of the New Edinburgh Edition of the Works of Robert Louis Stevenson, which is to be published in 39 volumes: the first wave of volumes appeared in 2013.

Current and forthcoming research includes:

  • Two book chapters on the male body, medical gothic and late-Victorian periodical fiction.
  • A book chapter on my pervasive media adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde for a collection on Stevenson and cultural memory.
  • An invited book chapter on the ghost story and the book trade.
  • Two journal articles on the Romantic literary marketplace.

As well as academic research, since 2013, I have have been working as the academic lead in Jekyll 2.0: Embodying the Gothic Text, an AHRC-funded knowledge-transfer project which adapts Stevenson's classic novella into a pervasive media game driven by players’ bio-data.

I was also co-investigator on WISE: What Is Scholarly Editing?, funded by the AHRC's Collaborative Research Skills Development scheme. This comprised a series of workshops to be held in Cardiff, Durham and London between 2014 and 2015, in order to train doctoral students and Early Career Researchers in the theory and practice of editing. From December 2015, I will be leading the development of a Digital Humanities network at Cardiff University.
