I am a PhD student at the University of Leeds, UK, where my research looks at the relationship between masculinity and ecology in contemporary American fiction, focusing particularly on representations of the Old West. Find out more about my current research HERE.
I hold an MLitt in Modern and Contemporary Literature and Culture from the University of St Andrews, and a BA (Hons) in English from Staffordshire University. My previous roles have included work as a copywriter and corporate blogger, and as an English teacher (TESOL) and university lecturer in China’s Hunan Province.
My academic writing has appeared or is forthcoming in a number of peer-reviewed journals and edited collections. I am the recipient of the 2018 British Association for American Studies Postgraduate Essay Award and the 2017 British Association for Contemporary Literary Studies Postgraduate Essay Prize. Examples of my non-academic writing can be found in a variety of digital and print media. For a full list of my publications, please see my C.V. page.
