I am an early career researcher investigating the connections between technology, gender, politics, and aesthetics in the city in late-Victorian, Edwardian, and Modernist literature. My doctoral research on literary responses to the electrification of London at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries was funded by a Doctoral Fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada. I completed my D.Phil. in English Literature at St Anne's College at the University of Oxford in December 2015.
In 2015-2016, I was a lecturer at Queen's University, Canada. I taught ENGL 360 (Modernist Poetry and Prose – an upper-year undergraduate lecture course), ENGL 486 (T. S. Eliot and Virginia Woolf – an upper-year undergraduate seminar) and ENGL 861 (After 1910: The New Novel in Britain – a seminar for M.A.s and first-year PhDs). In 2015, I became an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Since 2012, I have taught courses in Victorian (1832-1910) and Modern (1910 to present day) literature for both Final Honour Schools students and visiting students at St Anne's College, Oxford.
In 2014, I was Editor-in-Chief of the Oxonian Review –an online bi-weekly publication that features essays and reviews of recently published work in literature, politics, history, science and the arts – with which I have been involved since 2012.
