Biography

I am a graduate of King's College London, where I completed a PhD on the work of Antonin Artaud. I held research posts in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures at The University of Manchester, and in the department of Film at Queen Mary University of London, where I taught on film and French modules. I came back to King's as a lecturer in 2016.

Research Interests and PhD Supervision

  • Documentary, avant-garde and experimental film cultures in France and Spain
  • Feminism and queer theory
  • Antonin Artaud

My first book, Antonin Artaud: The Scum of the Soul, was published with Palgrave McMilllan in 2014. My current book, on the work of the video activist Carole Roussopoulos, is under contract with Punctum books. I have published on the work of Chantal Akerman, queer French and Spanish film, as well as on the work of Artaud. I am on the editorial board at MAI journal.

I welcome PhD applications in film and visual culture, in particular related to avant-garde, experimental, queer and feminist work.
