PhD Candidate, School of English, University of Leeds

I'm a tutor and PhD student at the School of English, University of Leeds. My research examines the memoirs and autobiographies of Doris Lessing, Penelope Lively and Janet Frame. I'm currently working on a co-edited collection titled British Culture After Empire, 1945-Present.

My wider interests include life writing, postcolonial literature, feminist thought and graphic narratives. From 2017-2018 I was a Research Assistant on the AHRC project 'Mobilising Multidirectional Memory', co-organising events and symposia at the Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre.
