My primary research is in contemporary film and media, with an emphasis on popular modes, principally in Hollywood and Europe (especially France). Within these contexts, I have special interests in gender studies and transnational dynamics.

In addition to many book chapters and journal articles, I have published books on:
1. romantic comedy in French cinema
2. genre narratives by women in film and television globally
3. the current status of European cinema as a whole
4. genre films by women in contemporary Hollywood
5. romance and social bonding in contemporary culture

I have recently led an AHRC-funded project on the postnationalisation of Franco-European popular film and TV via streaming platforms.
