Personal profile

I am a lecturer in film and television studies in the Department of Media Arts. My research specialisms include early postwar American television history and cinematography and British postwar television history. 

My books include The Zoom: Drama at the Touch of a Lever (Rutgers University Press, 2018) and Hands on Media History: A New Methodology in the Arts and Social Sciences (Routledge, 2019 - co-edited with John Ellis). I have also published on the history of documentary film production in regional television, the television work of Robert Altman, and the employment of women camera operators in British television in the 1970s and 1980s.

My research has also been published in Television Aesthetics and Style (eds. Jason Jacobs and Steven Peacock, Bloomsbury Academic, 2013), A Companion to Robert Altman (ed. Adrian Danks, Wiley Blackwell, 2015), and in the journals Technology and Culture (2016) and the Historical Journal of Film Radio (2019) and Television. A further article is forthcoming in Women's History Review.

In the department of Media Arts my teaching expertise is in the area of documentary film and television. I convene the modules Documentary: History and Theory (MA2052) and Beyond Documentary: Personal Stories and Platforms (MA3050).
