Personal profile

My research focuses on digital media in performance, Shakespearean staging, and European theatre. From  2016 to 2019, I collaborated with the Belgian performance collective CREW on adaptations of Hamlet integrating Virtual Reality into live performance, which led to showings of work in KVS Theatre in Brussels. My monographs include Intermedial Shakespeares on European Stages (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014) and Biedny Hamlet [Poor Hamlet] (Ksiegarnia Akademicka Press, 2010). In 2018 I published two co-edited collections of essays in Palgrave Macmillan: Intermedial Performance and Politics in the Public Sphere and Local and Global Myths in Shakespearean Performance. My research has been funded by the EU's FP7, Kosciuszko Foundation, and Mellon Foundation. 

I am a book reviews editor for the International Journal of Performance Arts and Digital Media, co-editor of Contemporary Theatre Review’s Interventions, as well as Regional Editor (Europe) for MiT's Global Shakespeares Video & Performance Archive. I am also a member of the AHRC’s Peer Review College (2015-2021).

I gave invited lectures and seminars at the University of Cambridge, the Shakespeare Institute (University of Birmingham), University of Surrey, University of Glasgow, the University of Murcia (Spain), and Vrije Universiteit (Brussels, Belgium). From 2013 to 2016 I co-convened the Intermediality in Theatre and Performance working group of the IFTR.

I would be interested in supervising projects in the following areas:

  • intermediality and digital media in performance
  • Shakespeare in performance
  • contemporary European theatre 
  • theory and practice of adaptation
  • theatre and public sphere
  • theatre and globalization


  • Contemporary theatre
  • Theatre & professional practice
