I am a Doctoral Researcher in English, specialising in representations of deviance in the late 19th and early 20th Century. I have published on eugenics, criminology, social history and fascism, and my doctoral thesis explores the relationship between crime, eugenics and biological determinism in inter-war detective fiction.

I currently teach on Approaches to Criticism and Romanticism and am Editor-in-Chief for the Exclamat!on journal and Co-Editor for the Postgraduate Journal for Medical Humanities.
