PhD Candidate in Contemporary Literature and Sound Studies, University of Leeds

My research is currently funded by the AHRC through WRoCAH. I have presented my work at the University of Vienna, the University of York and Canterbury Christ Church University. My writing has appeared in the Journal of Early Career Researchers for Humanities and Social Sciences. I graduated from my BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Sheffield in 2014 (First-Class Honours).

My PhD concerns sound technology in contemporary fiction - I’m looking at a selection of U.S. novels since 2000 to examine recorded music’s political ecology (or how recordings are made, what they are made of and how they are disposed of).
