Assistant researcher, Western Sydney University

My Ph.d thesis explores the intersection of embodied spectatorship with the genre of horror, particularly in evolving forms such as new media and virtual reality. More generally my work attempts to examine cinema through the primacy of its sensory-affective dimension, and argues that an understanding of the integration of form and content is pivotal to unpacking the cinematic experience.

I'm also particularly interested in the practice and artform of screenwriting, Deleuzian cinema theory, and the ethical possibilities of cinema.
