I am an AHRC-funded postgraduate researcher in Literary Linguistics (Stylistics) at the University of Liverpool, UK. I also work as a seminar tutor and guest lecturer on undergraduate modules in stylistics and sociolinguistics. My PhD thesis focuses on metaperspectives and the role of hypothesis within novels which won the [Man] Booker Prize between 2000 and 2020. I was awarded the Palgrave Prize by the Poetics and Linguistics Association (PALA) in 2022.
My recent publications include the narrative poem 'Stealskin' alongside ''Stealskin: A Stylistic Analysis' (Exclamat!on, 2022), ''Your duplicitous point of view': Delayed revelations of hypothetical focalisation in Ian McEwan's Atonement and Sweet Tooth' (Language and Literature, 2021) and ''[P]laying ghetto': Style Shifting to Jamaican Creole in Marlon James' A Brief History of Seven Killings' (The English Languages: History, Diaspora, Culture, 2020).
