Overview

I joined Cardiff University as a Lecturer in English Literature (Literature and the Environment) in January 2022.

I work on post-1945 British and American literature and the environment, with specialisms in ecocriticism, literature and science, Cold War literature and the history of modern environmentalism. My new work also considers contemporary climate change writing in literature, science, journalism and activist writing. My first monograph, Writing Nature in Cold War American Literature, was published with Edinburgh University Press in 2018.

Before coming to Cardiff, I was a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Global Fellow at the University of Bristol, working on a project titled 'Imagining the (Eco)Future: Ecotopian Thought in an Age of Climate Breakdown", funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 101031697.

I was a Visiting Scholar at the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München in Autumn 2021.

Prior to this, I was Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Bristol (2020-21) and a Vice-Chancellor's Fellow in Environmental Humanities at the University of Bristol (2017-2020).

I was a Postdoctoral Fellow & a Visiting Research Fellow in Environmental Humanities at The Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, University of Edinburgh (2016-2017).

I hold a PhD in English from the University of Exeter (2016).
