Biography

I am a lecturer and researcher in Film Studies whose PhD thesis evaluated how the burgeoning 'steampunk' movement has become a defining presence in contemporary Hollywood cinema. I have a book contract with Bloomsbury, and am currently in the process of publishing a number of articles related to this field alongside planning future projects.

I have run a variety of modules that act as introductions to Film History, Film Theory and International Cinema, as well as specific courses focused on Genre, Hollywood Studies and Multimedia Convergence. As a lecturer, seminar tutor, workshop leader and dissertation supervisor, I have also run a number of Scriptwriting modules that are inclusive of work within television, film and radio.

My teaching experience has covered all years of undergraduate study, as well as postgraduate and mature distant-learning courses. I have also provided pastoral care to a great number of students and am dedicated to encouraging a learning environment that is both intellectually stimulating and engaging throughout all levels of education.
