I completed my MA in Twentieth Century Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London in 2008 before moving to the University of Exeter to begin my PhD. After completing my PhD in 2012, I was as an Honorary Research Fellow at Exeter 2012-13 before joining BU in September 2013 as lecturer in Linguistics (English & Communication).
My doctoral research examined the intersection of literature and culture throughout the Cold War through analysis of Britishness and decolonisation in the work of Graham Greene, Ian Fleming and John le Carré.
Alongside my research into popular cultures, I have developed a strong profile and publication history in medical humanities, mostly around examining the process of reciprocity and interdisciplinarity between medicine and the arts.
My current research project links my interests in literatures of the Cold War and the post-war period of decolonisation with that of my medical humanities work through an interdisciplinary study of colonial medicine and the Anglo-Indian novel c. 1950-1990.
