Biographical details

I joined the University of Sydney as a Lecturer in Writing Studies in February 2018. Prior to that, I held a Visiting Research Fellowship in the School of Literature, Art and Media at Sydney. I have also worked as a Lecturer in English here at Sydney, and as Associate Lecturer in Modernism Studies at the University of New South Wales, Australia (where I worked as a Lecturer in English and Film Studies).

I specialise in modernist, postmodernist, and contemporary literature and film, with an interest in how these genres and practices intersect with the disciplines of gender and sexuality studies. In 2017, I published a monograph: Charles Henri Ford: Between Modernism and Postmodernism. I have also published essays in Angelaki: Journal of the Theoretical Humanities, Modernism/modernity, and Journal of Modern Periodical Studies.

I am currently working on two research projects. The first deals with the development of non-normative modes of modernist cultural production between 1870 and 1960. The second focuses on the work of the contemporary filmmaker Olivier Assayas.
