IMG_3497I am a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow in English at the University of Sheffield, where I research and teach 20th- and 21st-century literature. I am the author of British Literature and Culture in Second World Wartime: For the Duration (Mid-Century Studies Series, Oxford University Press, 2020). You can read a short essay on some of the book’s stakes and arguments here.

Previously, I was a Junior Research Fellow at Jesus College, University of Cambridge (2014-2016), a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto (2014), a Lecturer in English Language and Literature at the University of Waterloo (2014), and a Scholar in Residence at Bader International Study Centre, Herstmonceux Castle (2013). I completed my B.A. in English and French at Queen’s University (Canada), my M.Sc in Literature and Modernity at the University of Edinburgh, and my Ph.D in English at the University of Cambridge.

For 2019-2021, I hold a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award for my project, ‘The Aesthetics of Drone Warfare’. The project website is here.

From 2018-2021, I am the Sheffield lead of the interdisciplinary research network ‘Electronic Soundscapes’, which is funded by the White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities (WRoCAH) under the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).

I am the commissioning co-editor of the ‘Modernist Geographies’ section of Literature Compass. If you think your work is suitable for the journal, please feel free to be in touch.
