Senior Lecturer in English Literature, York St John University

My PhD on climate and climate theories, meteorology, and Victorian fiction, explored Victorian climates in relation to medicine, economics, weather prediction, and evolutionary theory. My work since then has been increasingly focused on medicine and disease, particularly in connection with the Brontes. I recently published an article on rabies in Charlotte Bronte's novel 'Shirley', and I'm working on a book proposal on contagion and the Brontes.
