Associate Professor in Film and Media; Deputy Head of School of Media and Communication, University of Leeds

My main research interests concern representations of gender, sex, social class, poverty and place on film and television. In particular, I have a strong interest in visual articulations of the North of England on screen. I am also engaged in research on activism, performance, emotion and politics.

I'm an expert in sex on screen, and the editor of Television, Sex and Society, plus several chapters and journal articles on representations of sex focusing on female sexuality.
