Research Interests and Specialism

 

My doctoral research was in the fields of comparative literature, culture, and philosophy. I specialise in the area of environmental humanities, focusing on eco-critical works and their exploration of energy regimes moving from nineteenth century to modern day, while incorporating feminist theories, and decolonial perspectives.
