Lecturer in Modern and Contemporary Literature, Newcastle University

My research falls into four main areas, all linked by my primary interest in the relationship between gender and genre: women's writing and feminist theory; crime fictions, particularly detective and sensation novels; cybertheory and cyberpunk; and, First World War Studies.

I am writing a book on the corpse and forensics in contemporary fiction. Next up is a book on the rise of the British detective novel.
