About

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 For the Duration: British Literature and Culture in Second World Wartime (under contract with the Mid-century Studies Series, Oxford University Press).

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 2019-2020, I hold a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award for my project, ‘The Aesthetics of Drone Warfare’.

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.
