I am a lecturer in Shakespeare and Renaissance literature. My research focuses mainly on early modern drama, including the works of Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare: my new book project explores how playwrights conceptualised and established control over the liminal spaces of the Elizabethan and Jacobean theatres. I am also very interested in the poetry and prose literature of the Renaissance period. I am currently co-developing a collaborative research project which investigates the cultural afterlives of Renaissance men and women in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
