After completing my DPhil in Modern Languages at the University of Oxford in 2009, I worked as a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in French ((2010-2013) at the University of Warwick and as a Lecturer in French Studies at the University of Reading (2013-2015). I joined the Department of Classics at King’s in 2016.

Research interests
  • The aesthetic and material conditions of authorship in the European nineteenth century
  • History of intellectual property
  • The practice and history of adaptation

My research focuses on the ways in which authorship develops in the increasingly commodified literary marketplace of the nineteenth century and on the ways in which it is represented in nineteenth-century fiction. 

Selected Publications
  • Reappearing Characters in Nineteenth-Century French Literature (Palgrave, forthcoming, 2018)
