I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Leeds, UK, where my research looks at the relationship between masculinity and nature in contemporary literary reimaginings of the American Old West. I also run the blog and podcast ‘Old West, Now,’ and its associated social media accounts.
I hold an MLitt Modern and Contemporary Literature and Culture from the University of St Andrews, and a BA (Hons) English from Staffordshire University. My previous roles have included work as a freelance writer/copywriter for a number of websites and businesses, and as an English teacher (TESOL) in the UK, and in China.
My research is funded by a John Barnard Scholarship.
