I'm a Lecturer in Postcolonial Literature at Keele University. I'm currently working on a book, Contemporary Life Writing at the End of Empire, which is due out with Bloomsbury in 2023.
Working with the imperial historians Dr Liam Liburd and Dr Josh Doble, I have recently co-edited an essay collection British Culture After Empire: Race, Decolonisation and Migration Since 1945, which is due out with Manchester University Press in late 2022.
My wider interests include life writing, postcolonial literature, imperial history, and graphic narratives. I have previously worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Oxford Centre for Life Writing (2020-2021) and as Research Assistant on the AHRC project 'Mobilising Multidirectional Memory' (2017-2018) at the Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre.
