Personal profile

I completed an AHRC-funded PhD, supervised by Professor Tim Armstrong, in Spring 2017. My research explored how ideas of realism were negotiated by writers, theorists and filmmakers associated with the small modernist magazines Close Up (1927-1933), and Life and Letters To-day (1935-1950).



During my PhD, I was active in the research community. I co-convened the Literature and Visual Cultures Research Seminar, an interdisciplinary forum supported by Royal Holloway. In December 2013, I was elected to the position of BAMS Postgraduate Representative and was part of the organising committee for the BAMS 2014 international conference Modernism Now! I also completed a 3 month Kluge Centre Scholarship at The Library of Congress. 

Before beginning my PhD, I was a secondary school teacher and I have a continued interest in pedagogy. I now work at Queen Mary University in the Learning Development team whilst also offering consultancy in schools.

I graduated from The University of Leeds with a BA in English Literature. I went on to do a PGCE in the School of Education, completing my NQT year in Leeds before moving to London to do an MA in Modern Literature at Queen Mary, University of London.
