Research supervision

I very much enjoy supervising research students, and in 2016 received the Students' Guild Award for 'Best Research Supervisor'. 

I would be interested in supervising research students in the following areas:

  • Virginia Woolf
  • D. H. Lawrence
  • Literature and emotion
  • Literaure and medicine

Please do feel free to email me with enquiries.
