I came to Cardiff in 2017, having completed a PhD in English at the University of Exeter. My research focuses on the relationship between twentieth-century literature and psychology. Much of my work has focused on the writing of Samuel Beckett and I have just completed a monograph focusing on Beckett's relationship with experimental psychology. This will be released in January 2020 as part of Bloomsbury's Historicizing Modernism series. Other authors that I work on include R.L. Stevenson, Gertrude Stein, Ann Quin and Philip Roth.

At Cardiff I currently lead a number of modules that take in the history of Gothic literature and the relationship between literature and science.
